Starting from the high valley of the Pfundser Tschey with its countless haystacks and colourful flowering meadows, we head up to the Gschneier Alm pasture. If you like, you can also make a quick early stop here; both the Gschneier and the Platzer Alm pasture offer refreshments in summer! We continue across Alpine pastures up to the Lahnkopf peak. From here, we cross over into the Platz high valley, home to the Platzer Alm pasture: the highest Alpine dairy farm operated in Tyrol. Here, the age-old tradition of grazing even the highest elevations of the Alps is kept alive. Indeed, even before the first herdsmen arrived, these high valleys were the domain of the people who lived here thousands of years ago and used them as hunting grounds.

 

We continue past the ruins of the former mine and through the grassland known as the “Platzwiesen”. In contrast to the land on the “alm”, these fields do not belong to the community but rather to individual farms. They used to be mountain hay meadows, which were harvested to improve the winter fodder for the farm in the valley, and they form the uppermost limit of the more intensively farmed cultivated land. They are home to an incredible diversity of plants and animals that is noticeably different from that of the grazed pastures.

 

Finally, this circular trail takes us back to the starting point via the entire length of the Pfundser Tschey.
