The last patches of snow are slowly melting away and I can at last start this year’s hiking season. My new hiking boots are ready and waiting. Today I’ll take you with me on my tour along the “Queen’s Trail“. Like so many others, I’m a real flower-lover and there are plenty of blooms for me to wonder at on this tour. The alpine flowers are at their prettiest now, especially the “queens” along the trail from the Aualm, Sulzkaralm and Hofpürglhütte to the Hofalm.
So today I set off with qualified mountain guide, Coen Weesjes and my friend in search of the queen of all the flowers – the orchid. In our lovely mountain village up to 25 different types of orchid have been found, some of which are under strict protection.
