Spitzenbachklamm the "Valley of the Butterflies

Open
Let yourself be enchanted by the colourful world of butterflies and unique flora on a leisurely hike through the Spitzenbachklamm.
The Spitzenbachklamm: a natural jewelAn impressive experience is the hike through the Spitzenbachklamm, also known as the "Valley of Butterflies". About 450 butterfly species find their habitat in this natural jewel. Due to the special north-south orientation of the gorge, thermophilic plants and high mountain plants grow close together. Caterpillars and butterflies find a huge food supply. As a natural monument, the gorge has enjoyed the highest protection status in Styria since 1971 and is an El Dorado for botanists, geologists and butterfly lovers, especially in early summer.
