European nature reserve Wiegensee in the Montafon

The European nature reserve "Wiegensee" is located at 1,900 m above sea level high above the Montafon municipality of Gaschurn in the village of Partenen. It lies within the "Verwall" bird sanctuary, but was declared a separate European protected area ("Wiegensee") due to its importance.

The moor landscape with the extensive mountain pine moor forests lies at the foot of the Versalspitze in a slope depression, the so-called "Wiege", which was created by the glaciers. After the glaciers melted, high alpine lakes formed in these flattened areas, which are increasingly overgrown by marginal fescue grasslands. Two of these former lakes have practically disappeared as a result, and in their place are now important bog habitats.
