With about 340 inhabitants Blons is the smallest community in the biosphere reserve Großes Walsertal. Its name comes from the Romansh and is called "Little Plain". The place on the sunny southern slope of the valley had to go through a lot in the winter of 1954, when 13 avalanches hit the area over the course of three days. To commemorate the 50th anniversary three thematic trails (Leusorgweg, Schutzwaldweg and Verbauungsweg) and a documentation center were set up, where people can find out more about the disaster on site. For nature lovers Blons offers wonderful hiking trails, many biotope areas and old haymakers with high natural value.
