"Hinterthal features a picturesque location, as you can hardly find anywhere else. In steep angles the lush green meadows and slopes rise from the valley up to the mountains that are surrounded by a ring of black spruce forests. Behind them, gray walls of rock are towering up powerfully against the sky, they glow, especially in the evening light in a charming blush and form a triad of colors“
