Holdamoos Nature Paradise, Schoppernau
In 2000 the Bregenzerwald villages of Au and Schoppernau have joined forces in order to make the scenic "Holdamoos" area accessible to locals and guests. A landscape that promises real nature exploration thanks to its unique centerpiece, the almost 400-year old mountain hut saved from demolition and decay.
The Holdamoos Nature Paradise comprises also a colorful herb garden with many wonderful scents, lovingly maintained by the local Au-Schoppernau-Schnepfau Kneipp Association. Some 200-year old healing herbs and spices are growing here in a wind-protected hollow densely lined by trees and bushes. All of them are local plants, among the highlights rank the Bodensee forget-me-not or the Alpine arnica.
The plants and herbs grow in their natural surroundings and feature information boards with detailed descriptions. Furthermore you can enjoy a splendid Kneipp fountain, a special place of strength and a grill site.
Trail details: you walk on foot from Au-Rehmen or from the car park of the Diedamskopf mountain lift in Schoppernau - for both routes you need about 15 minutes on a family-friendly walking trail, which is also suitable for baby prams and strollers.
