This hike provides a great insight into the colourful variety of Alpine plants and their habitats in altitude mountain areas.
The educational flower trail passes through lots of altitudinal belts of Alpine flora and vegetation which are defined as being of interest in the natural history guide "Blumenweg Oberseite" published by the Austrian Alpine Association (new edition 2011).
Earmarked stopping points along the route are outlined in it.
Route start: St. Jakob/Trogach
Route end: Seespitzhütte
The biggest interconnected stock of Swiss pine trees in the Eastern Alps and an Alpine landscape characterised by the centuries-long work carried out by miners provides a charming setting for the nature and cultural educational trail in the Swiss pine forest in Oberhauser.
Nine information boards provide information about the ecosystem of the Swiss pine forest and its substantial flora and fauna, as well as life in the Alps.
Route start: Alpengasthof Oberhaus
Route end: Optional Verlänergung bis Jagdhausalmen
Initially easy uphill to Holzer Mühle. After a steep section, going out of the valley, on the mountain slope facing the sunny side you come across typical examples of early mining life in an extreme location. At Froditzbach the ‘Holzer Mühle’ is still in operation today. Flax is processed and grain mills are powered by the streams.
People had to fend for themselves over the long winter in this secluded area. Information boards recount this to date unfamiliar story. The route may also be tackled from the other direction, for instance from the centre of St. Veit via Gassen to Bruggen.
Route start: Bruggen (St. Veit)
Route end: Gassen
The water hiking trail exits at the fountain at the Kulturhaus and proceeds along the Schwarzach, past the old Böckin Mill and heritage-protected Blosbrücke, into the valley heading to Schmitt’n Kirchl.
Information boards recount the significance of the water, the way water has been used to power the mills since time immemorial, and also about the dangers of the water. Benches and rest stations invite you to take a break for a while. The ‘Auen Tümpfl’ pond area, a biotope which has plenty of fish, where there is a play area for children, has been particularly nicely designed.
