The Rugell Riet forms - together with the Bangs Riet in the adjacent Vorarlberg region - a magnificent landscape of moorlands. In May, blue Siberian irises blossom here. Rare birds nest in the reeds and woods. Myriad insects and harmless reptiles also inhabit the damp, untouched meadows.
Limseneck (quarry), Haldenmäder, Hohla Kär (rock cave) and a sunken pool are the stages which lead in a wide arch at the foot of Mt. Eschner to the custom house. The meadows and peat-bogs of the Rugell Riet come into sight. Suggestion: Take care not to disturb the animals during breeding time and don't leave the marked trails. Binoculars for birdwatching will come in handy.
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.
