The “Scheulingwald” is a protected part of the Tyrolean landscape and is an enrichment for the village due to its invigorating effect and is of great importance for the market town of Mayrhofen in terms of its recreational value. It extends over 14.0 km and borders the eastern edge of the market town of Mayrhofen. The largely flat Scheulingwald, with varying densities of trees, changes to a steep slope area further east of the Brandbergstraße. The Scheulingwald is an important retreat for native animal and plant communities.
In the north-western edge of the protected area there are agricultural areas, the forest cemetery, the forest festival site with its extraordinary ambience, the playground and recreation park, the skate park and the miniature golf course”. In addition, numerous walking paths criss-cross the area and the water nature playground “Brindlang” can also be used by visitors.
