The Nassfeld formed an important regional building block on the way to a common, peace-keeping Europe. European history was indeed written here. Follow these traces. And tell others about it.
Tips and hintsPreface by the authors:
In 2016 the Nassfeldkirche and Nassfeldstraße will be 100 years old - a reason to commemorate the past of this area in a special way in the form of a historic mile. The history of mankind is also one of weapons - here they were already used 9000 years ago - for hunting. So this bow stretches in the figurative sense from the Stone Age to the 30.5 cm mortar in the 1st WK. The hike leads from the state border to the Watschiger Alm and back via the sulphur spring. The visitor gets to know botanical and geological peculiarities, but also dives into the long history of this area with the focus on the 1st World War. It is a way to reflect and should remind us how grateful we can be for a united Europe. The Nassfeldkirche - created during the war - became a symbol of international understanding and peaceful coexistence, at the same time an important mission for the future. The Nassfeld formed an important regional building block on the way to a common, peace-keeping Europe. European history was indeed written here. Follow these traces. And tell others about it.
