Coloured stones in the Flumserberge
Discover the magnificent Flumserberg landscape, and coloured stones! Experience with GeoGuide: The mountain panorama, moor lakes, mighty rock folds and fossils from a sea long gone.
Red, white, yellow, brown are the stones here, a wonderful play of colours, together with the green alpine pastures. On this hike you will discover the many colours of the stones. Your gaze wanders over the vast and interesting landscape, amazed. Equally astonishing is the mighty rock fold at the Sichelkamm, and the steeply upright rock packages at the Sächsmoor. You are in the middle of the UNESCO World Heritage Tectonic Arena Sardona.
The start is on the Maschgen ridge, and soon the view opens out onto the Seeben moorland landscape, with its three mysteriously dark-shimmering mountain lakes. The view down into the Murgtal is spectacular: red Verrucano stone and the northernmost occurrence of Swiss stone pines. Soon the idyllic Sächserseelein is reached, and now a game can start: Who will discover the most belemnites, fossils from the past Tethys Sea?
