The largest larch pine forest in the Eastern Alps stretches out on the Warscheneck plateau. It is a millennium-old habitat where, apart from traces of past alpine farming, there is hardly any human influence. Especially in spring, when everything starts to bloom, the contrast of this unique alpine landscape really comes into its own: on the one hand the barren karst landscape with steep, rugged rock faces and bizarre karst formations, on the other hand an incomparably floristic wealth, with old, gnarled trees, one of which strange magic goes out. Particularly impressed is the 1000 year old Swiss stone pine, which is firmly anchored in the ground with its strong roots and has survived many storms.

But we don't just discover larch and Swiss stone pine, many other highly specialized and rare plants on our hike: right after the snow melts, soldanelles put their heads through the snow, the Clusius primroses, also known as "Jagablut", set strong color accents like countless yolk flowers. In the dry crevices we find the rare Petergstamm in an unusual luxuriance, spring gentians and Alpine pasque flowers grow in the alpine lawn mats.

In autumn the forest shines in flaming, colorful clothing: clear air, blue sky, snow on the surrounding peaks, the deep dark green of the Swiss stone pine, the yellow larch trees, the red foliage of the blueberries. Impressions that never let go.
