The enchanting Eichental valley is just a stone’s throw away from the town centre. It was created by the Prien glacier, the little brother to the huge Inn glacier. It ground out a path that has allowed the river Prien to flow down the valley since post-ice age times.
Why not discover this untouched river landscape with your children? Stop and watch the dippers and kingfishers or collect some pungent wild garlic. Errant stones by the side of the path tell the story of the ice age. Priental is also perfect for plant lovers. In contrast to other river walks, the Prien has kept its character as “daughter of the mountains”. Its hillsides are covered with indigenous deciduous forest and the forest floor is covered with plants like lady’s slippers, aconite or different types of lily. For fitness fanatics there are plenty of opportunities for walking, playing tennis or putting your fitness to the test on the “Trimm-dich-Pfad”.The river Prien and its nearby Kneipp baths are the perfect place for cyclists to give their feet a refreshing soak. Walkers enjoy the peace and should definitely plan a detour to the St. Salvator pilgrimage church or follow the nature discovery path. Priental is also a great starting point for day hikes towards Bernau and Aschau.
