The Schwemm Moorlands
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!
