Flower Theme Trail, Faschina
One of the very special attractions of the Großes Walsertal Biosphere Park is the huge variety of Alpine flora on the "Hahnenkopf" in Faschina, owed to the outstanding geological circumstances in this area.
Nature fans will find truly incredible Alpine plants between the middle station (1780 m) and the top station (1865 m) of the panoramic Stafelalpe mountain lift. More than 150 species species await you here - among them also rare Turk's cap lilies.
The Faschina mountain lift company has installed a wonderful Flower Theme Walking Trail here in the picture-book mountains. A wide range of Alpine plants and geological facts are displayed on information boards spread along the walking trail, including also detailed descriptions.
The interpretative boards provide hikers with up-to-date information according to the blooming seasons, therefore they are changed several times per year. What's best, the descriptions can be found right next to the flowers amid unspoilt nature. All pictures added were taken in our region and exclusively along the Flower Theme Trail. Nature exploration at its very finest!
Marvelous guided tours with our expert botanist Guenther Bischof from Damuels are scheduled from May/June to August/September on a regular basis. On request, extra tours of the Flower Theme Trail with Guenther Bischof are available for hikers and small groups.
