Tour description

Even on the top of the Hilferenpass you can find moor land! The moor land Hilferen is a varied landscape between thin settled, wild “Flyschgebiet” and the annual inhabited moor landscape of the middle land: in the high location characterize alp meadows with dark spruce forests and flower-rich fen the picture. In the middle locations, moor meadows and spread meadows form a fascinating mosaic. Even in the low locations – on all-year admin-istered farms – you can still find big and coherent fen. The typical spread settlements are still received.

This part contains a day tour over the Hilferenpass with loads of woody hillside paths.

Specials in the moor of the Hilferenpass

O: Seven characteristic farms like you can just see them in the Entlebuch. Flat, stable, and barn floor are under the same roof. The hay stage overtowers the dwelling. The typical houses of Entlebuch belong to little real estates and were built between 1750 and 1850.
P: Here it shows a relief with the typical shape treasure of the alp: gorges and expanded slides on steep hillsides (Toregg, Steinwang).
Q: At the foot of the Schrattenfluh you can see wonderful cirques with extensive fen (Aem-mental, Tor, Hefti, Baettenalp).
R: Bog Taellenmoos: The name comes from Daehle=Mount pine.
V. The Schrattenfluh attracts attention with typical forms of karst like sinkholes and branched cave systems. In the opposite of the wet moor land, on the bare karst does not exist ground level water because it seeps away belowground through clefts and gaps.
