Nationalpark Hohe Tauern

The secret world of herbs

This is how nature tastes - interesting facts about herbs from the Virgental (Virgen valley)


  • Description:

    All paths lead to an edible "herb" on our herb-hunts, guided by an National Park ranger. We would walk past blooming herbs on the mountain pastures if it was not for the skilled eyes of the ranger, who calls us back: "Stop and taste - yarrow and lady`s mantle". Then all help to pick and process the herbs and savour the delicious National Park herb spreed.
