  • Nice tour to the calcareous tuff in Lingenau, which is one of the most remarkable calc-sinter formations to the north of the Alps.

    The calc-tufa in Lingenau is one of the most unique calc-tufa formations north of the Alps, making it one of the outstanding geological phenomena in Vorarlberg. The water flows in small flumes over rocks as far as the riverbed of the Subersach, forming canopies and sinter curtains. Five information boards describe the geology and vegetation of this spectacle of nature. The nature trail takes you mainly across a passable gravel path with wooden bridges and steps.

    The wooden bridges can be slippery when wet!

    The calcareous tuff in Lingenau is one of the most remarkable calc-sinter formations to the north of the Alps. The water flows in small flumes over rocks as far as the riverbed of the Subersach, forming remarkable canopies and sinter curtains. Calcareous tuff is easy to process, and has long been used as a buildingmaterial, such as in the baroque St. Anna Chapel.
