At the Großes Walsertal Biosphere Park

At the Großes Walsertal Biosphere Park

The Großes Walsertal, a neighbouring valley to Bregenzerwald, was declared a UNESCO Biosphere Park in the year 2000. The goal here is to enjoy nature without endangering it.

The Großes Walsertal Biosphere Park extends from Fontanella-Faschina, Damüls’ neighbouring village, to Thüringerberg near Bludenz. Its six villages are situated along a typical looking V-shaped Alpine valley. Agriculture and environmentally friendly and sustainable tourism play an important role here.

What exactly makes this biosphere park so interesting? This is the topic of a guided hike that starts from the biosphärenpark.haus in Sonntag-Stein. The building was styled according to contemporary Vorarlberg timber architecture and houses a biosphere-park exhibition, an Alpine exhibition dairy, and a small restaurant. Cheese from the Alpine dairy, like the popular “Walserstolz” and other varieties, are available in the shop along with products from the biosphere park.

The St. Gerold priory is the cultural centre of the biosphere park and also features a restaurant. Visitors to the facility, which features old and new components, can check out the church, a garden and a riding hall.

Tip: Guests with a Bregenzerwald Guest Card can use the Faschina and the Sonntag cable cars in the Großes Walsertal Biosphere Park for free.
