It’s the nature trail’s soft soil and pulpits that make visiting here an extra special experience. Visitors feel like they have been transported to the Scottish highlands. You won’t believe your eyes when sitting at the ‘Dragonfly Pond’ or standing high up on the ‘Moor Tower’ and marvelling at what the moor and its peat have to offer.
The starting point for this activity is the parking lot in Ardning. Thirteen stations and a strictly protected natural area are waiting to be (carefully and respectfully) discovered. In former times peat was used for domestic heating. That has changed of course and nowadays the area forms part of the Natura 2000 network and the Ramsar Convention for the conservation and sustainable use of wetlands.
What else makes the trail a popular excursion destination? Probably the fact that it offers the perfect conditions for hiking with children. And, no matter if you are standing on the Ennssteg Bridge or on a hill in the moor, even grown-ups will have lots of fun at Pürgschachen Moor.
