The Laubersmadghack, an upland moor between Kemmeriboden Bad and Sörenberg (near Salwideli) is a habitat of national importance, with typical sphagnum moss forests of Scots pine and spruce. Included in the Ramsar list of wetlands of special importance, it is one of the finest upland moor areas of the Englebuch biosphere (only accessible at the edges).
