“Hemmer” is the name for the plant that grows here. It’s poisonous and animals shun it. Numerous mossy spots create a sort of “soup” according to popular vernacular in which the hemmer plant thrives – together it becomes the Hemmersuppenalm or “hemmer soup meadow” if you like. This wetland with its typical meadow character is among the most scenic in our community area.
