GEOTour Garmil – Station 5
A personal guide will guide you on the popular Garmil high-altitude hike and give you interesting details about the geology along the way via smartphone.


Wonderful, the Garmil has been reached. There is hardly a more beautiful resting place. From here you can even take a look at Africa. Africa? Yes, you heard that right. But only in the geological sense, of course. If you look at the three sisters, the mountain in the Principality of Liechtenstein in the north-east, you will see rock that was formed in the African coastal area of the primeval Mediterranean. This tectonic unit is called the Eastern Alps. We ourselves are standing on the Helvetic, which was formed in the coastal area of Europe by limestone deposits. In the middle deep-sea area of the primeval Mediterranean, the so-called Penninic, clayey mud was deposited. The Falknis above the wine-growing village of Fläsch, for example, belongs to this tectonic unit.
