The Schwemm with its 65 ha is the largest contiguous moorland in North Tyrol. The diversity of the wetlands has been making the Natura 2000-area a natural gem since 2003. In North Tyrol, there are around 70 species of dragonflies, of which 33 species are found in the Schwemm. An observation tower near the Moarwirt Inn makes the moor accessible to visitors. Watching rare species of plants and animals or joining a guided tour of the moor make for unforgettable memories. That's why it's an important objective to preserve this moorland with its unique species of plants and animals!
Did you know that according to traditional popular belief and superstition, downy birches can be heard crying and wailing when injured? Or that a sprig of bog rosemary under your pillow will make dreams come true?
In entertaining fashion, moor guides Manu, Steffi, Andi and Gerhard introduce the whole family to the fascinating world of bogs. Be it frogs or newts, dragonflies or water beetles, there is plenty to see. Apart from entertaining and informative games, we are also equipped with scoop nets to go on the hunt for the inhabitants of the bogs.
On weekly moor hikes, experience the Schwemm, this unique natural gem with all your senses and enjoy pristine nature. It's an adventure for the whole family, as the playful elements contained in the explanations keep children happy.
For the whole family!
