The nature trail is one of the last mountain pine moors in Austria. The barrier-free wooden plank path can be used free of charge from April to October. On the approx. 1 kilometer long path there are information boards on the flora and fauna in the moor and in the Almenland nature park.
You can combine the moor nature trail with the Teichalm circular route!
The high moor on the Teichalm was created in the last Ice Age (Würm Ice Age) around 15,000 years ago. At that time, the high valley of the Teichalm was very poor in vegetation and characterized by erosion. Due to the elevation of the Mixnitzbach due to the deposits, the backflow of the areas further away from the stream was cut off during the flooding phases. This resulted in an increase in the groundwater level. That was the starting point for today's moor condition. Today's moor area emerged from the flood moor in the course of approx. 8,000 years. It consists of fen areas, alder forest and the high mountain pine.
The hiking trail leads through the middle of the high moor, it is laid floating on larch posts and leads about 1 km through the moor. On boards there are descriptions of the animal species (spiders, beetles, butterflies, dragonflies, lizards, adders, ...) and plant species (bog gentian, sundew, gray alder, willow, brook butterbur, ...), as well as a viewing platform and benches for a short rest. The path is very easy to walk on, even with a stroller, and is partially shaded by mature trees. The path ends right next to the Teichalmsee, which is ideal for a boat trip.
Take advantage of the opportunity and travel by public transport.
The "Moorlehrpfad" ist open from 1st April till 31st October.
The moor nature trail can be used free of charge.
