Tierwelten-Weg | Brandnertal

Have you ever imagined slipping into a marmot's burrow? And do you know how old a queen bee actually gets? On the Animal Worlds Trail you will learn more about the world of animals in Brandnertal.

The trail starts with the ascent of the Palüdbahn. From there, the easy hiking trail leads over the Niggenkopf to the Inner Parpfienzalpe and on to Brand. Back to the valley you take the Dorfbahn. The path can be walked in both directions. You can get back to the parking lot with line 81 of the public bus service.

Tip: Keep your eyes open. Maybe you will discover one or the other animal in the wild.
