Waldlehrpfad | Bludenz

The entrance to the forest nature trail is located directly at the moated castle in Hinterplärsch. During the walk you will come across numerous boards where you can learn many facts about the forest, for example why the forest is vital for humans and animals, which trees are used for which products, the forest is also a workplace and much more. The forest nature trail ends at the VAL BLU leisure pool. If the car is parked at the start, the way back can be made by bus.

Example of a station

The forest as a water reservoir

Spring water of the mountain slope from the Buchwald to Rungelin is collected with special spring catchments and flows from there into intermediate reservoirs. These lead the water into the valley and is then collected for us in the surge tanks, like the one at the entrance to the forest nature trail.

Author's recommendation

Take a break during your walk - sit on a bench, pause and listen to the beautiful birdsong.

Equipment
