Moors in the Wilder Kaiser
"Moor & more" adventure world in Going am Wilden Kaiser
The renaturated moor terrain "Moor & More" provides an entertaining way of learning fascinating information about rare flora and fauna in untouched nature.On the southern slopes of the Wilder Kaiser lies a small, almost forgotten mountain moor. Adventure paths and hiking routes empathetic with nature and its visitors have been created in the areas of Ellmau, Going and St. Johann in Tirol. In line with the motto "Moor & More" an 'open-air classroom' has been created with themed information boards for a botanical excursion under your own steam. Even more fascinating and rewarding is to join a guided moor hike.

The Story of Rocky – Take A Close Look
For his last birthday, Rocky got a pair of binoculars. He loves his binoculars and uses them to look at everything he wants to see up close: the Wilder Kaiser Massif, the Kitzbüheler Horn and everything else that used to be far, far away. One day he wanted to hang out with his best friend Törfchen. He headed over to her house only to find out that she wasn’t home. In fact, Törfchen’s parents Flora and Fauna told him, that their daughter had left to visit him. “That’s weird”, muttered Rocky and ran to Törfchen’s grandma Grusela, who was busy making a spiderweb. But since Rocky was only looking through his binoculars he didn’t see the cobweb and destroyed it. To avoid getting scolded by Grandma Grusela, Rocky ran away across the moorlands. Suddenly he bumped into Grandpa Schneggi so hard that the snail’s shell wobbled and shook.
“Careful, Rocky!”, Opa Schneggi said laughing.
“I’m so sorry! I didn’t see you!”, replied Rocky.
“Exactly my point”, Grandpa Schneggi said. “You are constantly looking through your binoculars to see things far away. That’s why you don’t see all the things happening around you.”
Rocky turned crimson red and put away his binoculars. Suddenly he saw Törfchen, who was standing behind her Opa Schneggi. And Rocky realized that Grandpa Schneggi was right.
Since this day Rocky has been using his binoculars only occasionally. He now prefers to roam the forest and moorlands with his friend Törfchen and he loves to marvel at the many natural gems hidden in the pristine landscape of the Moor & More nature park.

The Story of Törfchen, The Moorland Elf
Törfchen lives with her parents Flora and Fauna in a beautiful moorland between Going and St. Johann in Tirol. She loves muffins, sleeping in late and doing magic. When her magic wand broke by accident one day, Törfchen grew terribly bored and badly wished for a new one. The little elf ran to her parents and cried: “I can’t do magic anymore and I’m so bored!” Mama Flora told the little elf to take a closer look at the beautiful plants in the moorland. Papa Flora suggested she observe the local animals. “But that’s even more boring“, Törfchen whined and ran to see her Grandma Grusela, who always had the best ideas.
“Lets see“, Grandma Grusela said. “Why do you even need a magic wand? You have the world’s best playground at your feet!” Törfchen looked at her skeptically. What was her grandma talking about? How was she supposed to play without a magic wand??
“It’s easy, really”, explained Grandpa Schneggi, whom Törfchen visited next. “Just look around you. Nature has no magic wand, yet she makes all kinds of wonderful things grow. Who needs a magic wand when you are surrounded by magical Nature?” All of a sudden Törfchen realized that her family was right: she didn’t need a magic wand to have fun! From that day on she set out to explore Moor & More with its amazing nature, full of beautiful colors, plants and animals. Nature so lovely that not even the little elf could have conjured it up with her magic wand.
