GeoGallery

Along the GeoGallery, geology becomes art: on an approximately 5.9 kilometre long hike, you march past natural "works of art" created during the formation of the Alps. The processes of the formation of the Alps and thus the work on these natural works of art are still going on today, in such small steps that we hardly notice them.

One section of the GeoGallery is a 2 kilometre wheelchair and pram accessible circular trail. It starts at the Maschgenkamm mountain station and circles the "Ziger". The second section leads from the Maschgenkamm in serpentines down to the Maschgenlücke and from there on flat terrain to the Prodkamm mountain station. On the way, "tectonic" loungers or benches invite you to enjoy the fantastic panorama (including the Churfirsten and Lake Walen), and there is a rest area with fireplace for a cosy picnic or campfire.

A dream place in the Sardona Tectonic Arena, which has been awarded the World Heritage designation as the best place in the world for its visibility of alpine mountain formation.

Arrival information

The GeoGalerie can be reached by the Prodalp-Express gondola lift and then by the Prodkamm chair lift. Arriving at the Prodkamm, the route leads up to the Maschgenkamm and completes the circular hike back to Prodkamm. The return trip is again by chair lift Prodkamm - Prodalp and gondola lift Prodalp-Express to Tannenheim. It is also possible to hike from the Prodkamm directly to the Tannenboden. From there you can take the Postbus back to Tannenheim.

Please note that the Maschgenkamm gondola lift will be rebuilt in summer 2019.
