Adventure trails in Bruck and Fusch

Experience nature with all the family

Käfertal nature adventure trail

Käfertal is unique, impressive, variety-packed and filled with adventures.

The Käfertal nature adventure trail links one of the most beautiful and most impressive valleys in the Alps. At above 1100m altitude there are more than 300 types of beetle, almost 200 large butterfly species and plenty of wildlife. The path, which is suitable for prams, starts at Tauernhaus Ferleiten (close to the Ferleiten ticket office at the start of the Grossglockner High Alpine Road). Hike for 4km to the head of the valley, slight climb. At various stations and on the notice boards, visitors learn about the special features of this valley. The highlight is the water play area with rope ferry and Kneipp facilities.

  • Tauernhaus parking area – display board for the Käfertalweg
  • Oberstattalm - Manggeibau (Marmot burrow play area)
  • Information board on Alpine farming, near Vögeialm
  • Climbing rocks Vögeialm
  • Water play area with rope ferry
  • Station, lofty summits at Trauneralm bridge

From here there is the option of continuing to hike to the head of the valley into the Rotmoos conservation area, or head via an agricultural road for around 4km to the managed Trauneralm.

 

Children can get cards for Lucky's stamp game at Gasthof Tauernhaus Ferleiten or at Ferleiten Wildlife & Adventure Park.

 

Ameisenweg Moosalm

An adventure-packed stroll in the Moosalm Alpine area in Gries - for families and those who are interested in nature

The adventure trail is located at the Moosalm in Bruck / Gries at 1530m altitude. The many anthills on this Alpine pasture inspired us to create an adventure trail based on this fascinating realm of ants. On the one hand, there are fun aspects, and on the other there are scientifically established details about the life of 'Wilma the ant'. A detour to the Adam and Eve lake at the Moosalmhöhe, which has cosy benches, is a very special experience. Unspoilt natural surroundings and a dreamy view to the 3000 metre summit of the Hohe Tauern. A paradise for hiking, relaxing and fun. 

 

Cards for the 'Ameisen Quiz' are available in the tourist information offices in Bruck or Fusch!

 

Getting to the Ameisenweg

Nepomuk's Path of the Senses

Wonderful views to the Hirzbach waterfall!

'Nepomuk's Path of the Senses' in the centre of Fusch starts from the tourist information point. It passes the 'Kneipp's Five Pillars' and continues through the new lsidor Griessner Park. From the bridge it is an ascent of some 100 metres.

The high point is crossing the Hirzbach Waterfall on a spectacular bridge. Along this route, various display boards provide tips on how to enjoy your holiday, and even life in general, with all your senses. At the foot of the waterfall lounges invite you to rest and breathe in the water's ions. The finish point is the ''Holz und Schausägewerk Mühlauersäge', which has a wood museum and information about Bad Fusch.

Every small monument is unique!

In Fusch there are 21 small monuments, each one has its own reason for being set up on this site. They reflect the history, development and occasions in the district, and personal destinies too. They are reminders, question and are a part of our history.
