The Golden Man
Fiss, Tirol (AT)
Stone and adventure playground including children's mine
Long ago, the giant, whom they called ‘Golden Man’, withdrew to the Fiss mountains on the Schönjoch and, over time, he became a part of the rocks. The mountains have, since then, been home to a vein of gold – what was once the man's golden heart. pronatour created a children's innovative stone playground and mine based on this legend. The realisation of this project literally set a milestone with the architectural design that was implemented using natural materials. The structure seems to be emerging from the rocks. Local natural stone was used for many of the elements and the adventure playground was embedded into the landscape with great skill and know-how. It presents playful, interesting and fabulous aspects for all age groups – a unique highlight that generates added value for the entire region.
