Rest area Alp Stabelchod

At the time the park was founded, it was assumed that the forest would reconquer the former alpine pastures within a few years. 100 years later, we know that the red deer prevented reforestation through intensive watering. Despite model calculations, it is not possible to predict how long it will take until complete reforestation.
From the rest area you have an ideal view of the neighboring marmot colony. Red deer can often be observed during the day and chamois on the slopes. Interesting is the Fiederzwenke, a type of grass that grows in colonies and spreads almost in a circle.


Alp Stabelchod was used as a cattle until 1911. Today it is the best studied meadow in Europe and an ideal observation point for marmots.
