The colorful world of colors and scents

As soon as the last patches of snow have melted away, the big blooming begins. With the nature park supervisor Riccardo Insam we hike through the pastures and meadows, which are among the most species-rich habitats in the Schlern-Rosengarten nature park. A variety of rare flowers can be found there. 

Countless spring crocuses transform the meadows into a shimmering purple sea. Delicate anemones, snowdrops, primroses, gentians, brunellas, arnica, lilies and and and... A flower paradise that can hardly be found anywhere else in the world.
