On 240 hectares stand 2,300 maple trees, the oldest counting some 700 annual rings. The great maple is dominant in the Karwendel mountains, it loves the gravelly soil.
The natural monument "Grosser Ahornboden" to many is the absolute epitome of the Karwendel mountains. Here, nature is stage and spectacle in one: Maple trees, meadows, cows and mountains as the backdrop for the ground on which you walk and stand, reduce things to the essential. This natural abundance moving the senses almost brings on humbleness.
