    L8 Treasures Family HikeL


    Along the path from Niederthai towards Larstigalm we discover different plants and habitats, such as meadows for hay-making, dry stone walls, forest clearings and wet areas that are particularly important for butterflies.

    Our butterfly expert Karel Cerny will identify the butterflies that we’ll hopefully catch with our insect nets to study them up close. Of course we will net them carefully and only from the edge of the meadows, as the preservation of the agricultural meadows is essential for the continued existence of the fluttering beauties!

    Where do you think we’ll find most butterflies? On hay meadows, moist meadow areas, forest edges, intensively-farmed meadows or in the shade? Come and find out with us!
