Core Zone Gadental with BERGaktiv Großes Walsertal
Heart of the Biosphere Reserve
On this hike we will go to the untouched nature of the Gadental. From the car park Bad Rothenbrunnen, the trail winds through pristine forests in a gentle slope to the Gadenalpe at 1,317 m. You will discover the wonderful natural diversity of the valley with the rare willow forests and many alpine flowers. After a leisurely rest at the Alpe we make our way down whilst learning interesting facts about natural forest development. Shortly before a stop at the Alpengasthof Bad Rothenbrunnen, you can taste the iron-rich healing spring that gave its name to the health resort built in 1834.
After this hike, you will have experienced why this special valley has been designated a core zone and European protection area as a Biosphere Reserve and was voted "Most Beautiful Place in Vorarlberg" in 2016!
