A circular route visiting the butterflies of the Upper Kaiserboden and the Brandalm pasture, starting from the Kaiserhaus forester’s lodge and returning through the Kaiserklamm gorge
As a result of the structural diversity and the natural dynamics of Brandenberg’s woodlands, as well as their comparative remoteness from settlements and intensive agriculture, a large number of different butterfly habitats have become established and retained here. According to current information, 824 distinct butterfly species make their home in Brandenberg Valley! This circular walk leads all those interested to the best locations to see Brandenberg’s butterfly inhabitants. By referring to the brochure available on the subject, it is also possible to get up-close views of the various rare butterfly species native to Brandenberg and their habitats.

Visitors who don’t want to take the steep path through the Kaiserklamm gorge on their way back can easily avoid it by walking along the road (forest track). The route can also be shortened at the “Trauersteg” bridge (but you will miss the particularly beautiful area around the point where the Weißache flows into the Brandenberger Ache river).
