Exhibitions with fresh mushrooms show visitors the fungal diversity of our local forests and arouse interest in fungi. Aside from classic questions about edibility, the communication of ecological knowledge about fungi is a major focus.
Advanced training courses, as well as special offers for children and fungal excursions complement the exhibitions. The exhibitions bring specialists, interested amateurs, and other visitors together around the topic of mushrooms.
