The mountain plants are exposed to the extreme living conditions in the alpine mountain environment. At the higher altitudes, the summer is very short and the plants have little time to bloom. On the created mountain flower trails on Gerschnialp and Trübsee the visitor learns in an uncomplicated way about different mountain flower species and their living conditions. Surrounded by an impressive alpine mountain and glacier world, the hiker can learn about the mountain flowers that have settled in our area by means of yellow panels.
Each flower board features a 9-digit code. An information sheet explaining these codes is available on the sign index.
The mountain flower trail Gerschnialp leads from the station Gerschnialp to Untertrübsee.
