Biotopes in South Tyrol/Südtirol function not only as shelters for flora and fauna, but also as popular recreational areas. The Falschauer Biotope
in the village of Lana is easily accessible via walking trails along the Falschauer river. The pond and its delta are an excellent breeding ground for over 220 species of birds, such as the Cetti’s warbler and Kingfisher.
The ecological and recreational zone in the village of Rablà/Rabland near Parcines/Partschins is located directly along the Via Claudia Augusta
cycling path. At the center of the biotope is a small lake, at which mallards, dippers and coots cavort.
