Nature enthusiasts love the Gasterntal valley, which is accessible only in the summer season, because of its unspoilt natural setting, reminiscent of Canada. Flower lovers come here for the lady’s slipper orchids and Turk’s cap lilies, which bloom in June and July respectively. Those in search of peace and quiet appreciate the fact that the somewhat challenging access road puts many motorists off visiting the Gasterntal valley in the first place. Families with children, on the other hand, are drawn to the high valley because of the many play areas and picnic sites along the banks of the Kander river.
