Idyllic alpine pastures
As a part of the cultural landscape of mountain farming, the Nature Park’s alpine pastures are wonderful destinations for day hikes. Historically speaking, the scope of alpine pasture farming used to be tremendous. In addition to lower alpine pastures that are still used for grazing cattle today, there used to be high altitude pastures. However, these pastures no longer have grazing rights due to forestry and hunting. Nonetheless, a great number of alpine pastures in the Nature Park is still used for grazing. The most typical components of alpine pastures are nardus stricta, white hellebore, monk’s rhubarb, arnica montana, monkshood and stemless carline thistle.
