Description

This walk will delight all who enjoy admiring flowers or have a special interest in alpine flora. Numerous information panels give details of the alpine flowers growing close by. The boards answer questions that many won’t have even asked themselves – such as why does the edelweiss have fleecy hairs? The answers come as a surprise: the edelweiss’s hairs, for example, protect it from sun damage, frost and drying out.

  • Appropriate for children from age 4
  • The many flowers make ideal photographic subjects.
  • Information panels in German, English, French, Japanese
