Schauwiese Seisenbachau

Outdoor adventure


The Seisenbachau is a very special hotspot of biodiversity. On an intact and mighty peat body, a mosaic of fen, wet meadows and bristly grassland has developed.
The vegetation, which is very species-rich with well over 80 plant species, is dominated by moor grass, brushland, small sedges and cotton grasses. Numerous impressive and endangered flowering plants, including several orchids, still find suitable living conditions here.
Such areas have become very rare and are of the highest value for nature conservation.

    (Dactylorhiza majalis)
    Orchid plant
    Beginning of May until end of May
    Greater two-leaved orchid
