Almrausch

the “guiding spirit” of the Nassfeld

A big bushy beard, kind eyes and a gnarly hiking stick: “Almrausch”, the mountain recluse, is something like the guiding spirit of the Nassfeld – and one of the region’s most legendary characters.

Whether it’s lost hikers or mountaineers in need of rescue – Almrausch helps them all, often applying his healing potions brewed from local mountain herbs and roots.

If the rescued want to thank him for his good deeds, he is long gone. Back to his secret cave, where the region’s birds and marmots tell him the secrets of the local mountain world around the bonfire every night.

That’s how Almrausch hears about the latest mischiefs of mountain villains such as the Speckwutz or the Pramollo Wild Posse – and can rope in fearless young adventurers to help him put a stop to their evil doings …
