World of moors

The Moor & more Adventure World of the Kaiser Mountains can be discovered along two interesting circular paths.

In the area of Going am Wilden Kaiser and St. Johann in Tirol two nature trails were built, to inform young and older visitors about a renaturated moor landscape. On the south side of the impressive Kaiser Mountains hiking tours can be made, which not only show the rare flora and fauna of this specific biotope but offer also plenty of informative things on information panels. Especially in early summer "Moor & more" fascinates with the blooming cotton grasses and the red sandstone. The project enthrals also children.

In the mountain moors, like the Hüttlmoos, Windwehenmoos and Steinbichlwald moor - all relics of the last Ice Age - carnivorous plants and many kinds of dragonflies can be found. You can choose between two circular paths: the "Moor & more Rocky-Runde" (starting point: parking space at the lake in Going, 6 km, about 2.5 hours) is designed for children from 5 years of age and includes caves, stone hills and something to climb.

The "Moor & more Törfchen-Runde" (starting point: Römerhof tavern in St. Johann in Tirol, 4 km, about 1.5 hours) is well-suited for kids and suitable for prams. The path follows the elf called Törfchen and her friends, elf Steinchen and Master Schneggi. A large playground must not be missed. Also guided walking tours are offered regularly. The project "Moor & more" is co-financed by resources obtained from so-called ERDF funding (European Regional Development Fund).
