In the Biotope of Eyrs

Near the villages Schlanders and Latsch in Vinschgau, amidst the river Tanaser and Mt. Sonnenberg, lies the wonderfully little village of Eyrs. The Southern dry and rocky steeps of Mt. Sonnenberg are the complete opposite to the shadowy and profoundly forested Mt. Nördersberg. Perseverant locals managed to cultivate here a variety of plants only due to artificial irrigation channels, still visible today on the so-called “Waale”, walking paths along those channels.

The paths along the ancient irrigation systems are very popular among hikers, as they lead through the unique nature, composed of forests, meadows and orchards. Well worth a visit is the information walk “Laaser Leitenwaal”. The walks are particularly pleasant during spring and autumn; but also during winter they are mostly snowfree and therefore ideal for extended hikes at higher altitudes.

In the home of bats and weasels

Not far from the village center lies the meadows of Eyrs, home to a variety of rare animals and plants. 1976 they were declared protected biotope and 2004 part of Natura-2000. Visitors can find here the near threatened species of the European bat Barbastella barbastellus, characterized by its short nose, small eyes and wide ears; and the least weasel (mustela nivalis), the smallest of the carnivores; despite its size, it is a fierce hunter and capable of killing a rabbit ten times its weight. Look out for the corncrake, the long-eared owl and the grass snake!
