The path leads you from the Argen gorge into the Auer Ried nature reserve. The power of water, geology, nature conservation, ancient cultivated landscape and the mighty Kanisfluh provide the subjects and the stations of the hike for those interested in nature. Over 50 rare species of plant thrive in the Auer Ried. Watercourses, gallery forests and damp biotopes run through the humid rough pastures and upland hay meadows with their numerous characteristic old hay huts.

Author’s recommendation

The volume of poems by Birgit Rietzler invites you to a literary hike through Auer Ried: "Berberitzen" puts in words the externally visible and the internally perceptible. Available in the tourist information offices in Au und Schoppernau.
