Flower Hiking Trail | Faschina

 

Between the middle station (1.780 m) and the upper station (1.865 m) of the Stafelalpe chairlift grows an divers amount of alpine flora. As an example of more than 150 different plants you can name the turban lily. So not unexpected, that the cable car Faschina decided to build an educational trail on flowers at this place. Now we can enjoy the panoramic view and learn something about the flora and geological conditions of the Walsertal mountains. The signs are repositioned regularly depending on the blooming period of the plants, so you can marvel at the flower directly next to the sign. Guided tours take place on regular dates in summer.
