The earth pyramids in Serfaus, formed by deposition and weathering, are a very fascinating and rare example of natural earth surface formation. They are located at the west end of Serfaus, just above the valley station of the Komperdell cable car between the ditches of the Hinterkreith and Edelbach streams.
The lifespan of earth pyramids
The tallest earth pyramid in Serfaus does not have the usual stone slab top, rather, it has a root stock whose uppermost layer has a reddish hue. Beneath are thicker grey layers, which in turn lie upon a more solid formation. These columns and cones are made from moraine rubble. Moraines are collections of rock debris, shunted and carried along by glaciers.
An earth pyramid has a limited lifespan, after all, the collapse of the capstone will mean speedier erosion ensues. In 1996 Landeck district commission set about proceedings to convey conservation protection status to the Serfaus Earth Pyramids.
