The name comes from German and means Mary's River. This is misleading as it is not a river but a beautiful grass valley. It is flat and surrounded by mountains and was probably formed by glaciers. An attraction in the Marienfluss are the Fairy Circles - large circular areas where nothing grows and nobody knows the reason.
Please stay on the main tracks when visiting this area. Venturing off to make new tracks or private tracks destroys this delicate environment, and is disrespectful to the local people and animals.
