In fact, more than a dozen species of orchid bloom in the Weidmoos in the summer alongside marsh gentians, felwort and menyanthes.
Just before you arrive at your destination, Ettal Mill, you will pass a pond. This is a headwater, in which water that has seeped down into a huge underground body of gravel re-emerges. Mallards, tufted ducks and common merganser can all be observed.
On your return leg to Oberammergau, you will enjoy fabulous views of the Kofel, an imposing and distinctive mountain which consists of hard coral rock and was created vertically when the Alps were originally formed.
Besuchen Sie das Weidmoos im Frühling - diese Blütenbracht in umwerfender Bergkulisse sucht seinesgleichen.
Im Notfall verständigen Sie bitte die nächstgelegene Rettungsleitstelle. Unabhängig vom Standort erreichen Sie diese deutschlandweit unter der Telefonnummer 112.
