Lying at the heart of scenic Kaiserwinkl Region, Schwemm, the largest still preserved moorlands of North Tirol, encompasses 65 hectares of unsurpassed, stunning landscape that has a quiet drama all of its own. Schwemm Moorlands in Walchsee has been included in the European Natura 2000 series of sites, confirming the area as an internationally important site for biodiversity. Responding sensitively to the changing seasons, the moorland is a special place whatever time of year. The moorlands are very diverse ecosystems and a microcosm of different habitats within one site. The Schwemm is home to 33 of the 70 dragonfly species in Tirol. An observation tower that stands 16 meters tall provides uninterrupted 360 degree views of the exceptionally beautiful landscape and a wonderful opportunity to simply stand and stare. Sharp-eyed visitors might even get the chance to spot some of the area’s specialised plants and wildlife. A guided tour of the moorlands is an exhilarating experience the whole family will enjoy.
