Moors theme trail: the Schwägalp is located amid moorland that is included in the Inventory of Swiss Heritage Sites (ISOS). A high walkway leads into the heart of the mysterious moors with their rare plants and animals. The 7 information panels along the walk (just under 2km) focus on biodiversity, fauna and flora, special cultivation practices and the impressive size of the Schwägalp moorlands.
The Moors trail also imparts valuable information about the development of moors: from the Ice Age to the first upland moors in the Alps and Pre-Alps.
The careful planning of a tour will ensure that you also derive the maximum pleasure and enjoyment from it. Please take the time to contact the local information centre and enquire about route and weather conditions before setting off. Your intended trail may be fully or partially closed, depending on the time of year and weather conditions.
