Theme trail of the protection forest
On the theme trail Schutzwald you will learn on a total of 11 post boards and an audio guide about the use and maintenance of a protective forest.
A protective forest protects people and infrastructure from natural hazards such as avalanches or rockfall. In the Goms, most of the forest area is designated as a protective forest. In the course of time, the demands on the protection forest have increased. Growing infrastructures (railways, roads, settlements) require a corresponding reduction of the risk of natural hazards. Protection forests must therefore be specially maintained and managed by the Forest Service. On 11 post boards you can find out how this is done in the Ritziger Bawald of Forst Goms. In addition to the boards, you can also play an audio guide on your mobile phone. In it, the forester explains what has to be taken into account when maintaining the protection forest. He will also show you more exciting details. The theme trail Schutzwald is integrated into the Gommer Höhenweg and can easily be walked on as part of the Münster-Bellwald hike. Note: You need a smartphone to play the audio guide. Download the app from GPS tracks. You must scan the QR code on each post board to start the Audio Guide.
