On Alpe Cimbra bears disappeared in the years before the war. Even if today they are not present as before they are still remembered in the stories and legends that old people tell. Therefore it is not a surprise that in Luserna there is a path dedicated to bears … maybe with the hope of meeting him?

The place where this excursion takes place is Luserna, the living testimony of the German-Cimbra colonization of the XI-XIII century. An amazing place, characterized by both fields and woods, the perfect environment for the bear! At the Documentation Centre it is possible to visit the exhibition about the local fauna.
