Nagelfluhkette nature park

Nagelfluhkette nature park

A magnificent cultural landscape, awarded the much-coveted designation “nature park”, developed on the interface between Bregenzerwald and Allgäu over the course of several centuries.

Today, 15 communities (eight of which are in the Bregenzerwald), are involved in the first crossborder park between Austria and Germany.

Alpine meadows with 290 different species of plant, valuable upland moors, forests of white firs and ravine forests and an alp density unmatched anywhere else in Austria are characteristics of the nature park. A connecting element is the impressive Nagelfluh range, which crosses the nature park from the west to the east. Great differences in altitude, geologic diversity, sustainable alp farming – all of this resulted in the creation of a large number of various living environments on a relatively small surface. During the winter, the easily accessible mountains in the nature park are an ideal destination for snowshoe hikers, backcountry skiers and lovers of nature.
