Globi cableway on the Engstligenalp
The Globi cableway in Adelboden is an exciting attraction for families.
During the ride in the cabin up to Engstligenalp, Globi the Parrot’s songs provide musical entertainment. You can also enjoy the view of the Engstligen Falls below, which tumble 600 metres down the mountain. Once at the top, Globi welcomes walkers and nature lovers. This friend to children offers specialities of Alpine hospitality, tells of life in the mountains, and helps visitors observe the animals. Ship-crafting and a picnic in the straw of the barn are all part of the fun.

Taking off with the Globi cable car
The Globi cable car will transport you and your family high up onto the Engstligenalp. Accompanied by Globi’s songs, there is plenty already waiting to be discovered during the ride. This includes the unique 600-metre-long waterfalls that send the water cascading down into the valley below.
Globi hiking trails
With Globi, walking is twice as much fun. The waymarked trails are ideal for exploring the landscape, flora and flora of the Alpine world. There are several themed Globi trails to choose from: the Globi Mountain Trail, Globi Alpine Trail and Globi Crystal Trail.
It’s time for a discovery tour!

Globi Crystal Trail
Globi suddenly stands still as if rooted to the spot. What are those glittering things? “Somebody’s probably smashed a glass bottle,” says Zima the chamois. “Those are crystals,” counters Lucas the mineral prospector, who is looking for crystals in the mountains. Globi is amazed: “Wow! They’re much prettier than diamonds!” Globi and Zima agree: they also want to search for crystals. Help them find 10 crystals and you will be rewarded with a crystal of your own.
