The small tour for families starts at the restaurant called "Obermühle" and takes you along the "Oder-Neisse-Cycle Path" to the vintage park railway. You will pass the Neisse Viaduct, the 475m-long viaduct is a railroad connection between Poland and Germany. Furthermore you will see the Robert Oettel Monument. Robert Oettel was a merchant, a councilman and the founder of the German poultry farming. At the park railway it is possible to ride the vintage park railway (closed in winter). There is also a playground for  kids. A restaurant and a lookout tower ruin at the vineyard, which is a tip for photographers, is located there, too. After that, the path takes you to the Landskron brewery, which is very interesting especially for adults. On the way back you walk through the park "Friedenshöhe", where you can have a nice view of the viaduct.
