ABOUT THE MOOS
During the last ice age, glaciers formed the Moosalp area into an impressive round hummock landscape. About 12,000 years ago, the enormous ice masses retreated. In the process, the bogs formed in the depressions between the round humps of gneiss.
The entire Moosalpregion is characterized by a sparse larch-pine forest. Some parts are under nature protection. The nature reserve covers an area of 1.5 km² with 11 different mire biotopes, both raised bogs and fens.
