Raron Detective Trail
Knight’s Way to Gestelnburg
The illuminated Ice Age cave on the Knight’s Way to Gestelnburg is sure to set children’s pulses racing and fuel their imaginations. See for yourself. The “Knight's Way to the Gestelnburg Ruin” audio tour is the perfect accompaniment to your journey along the Knight’s Way to Gestelnburg.
A quiet walk through forests, fields and farms. An alpaca by your side – so fun and full of charm. A child’s birthday, time with family or a group of friends. A walk with an alpaca is an experience that you’ll never want to end. Escaping the everyday for an hour or two (or even more) is good for the mind and soul and does wonders for your sense of wellbeing. Enjoy a selection of dishes in the Chrüterbeizli restaurant, including Alpine herbed alpaca sausage and dried alpaca meat.

Children’s e-Motocross Course
Eight-time Swiss trial champion Hans Zenklusen shows children how to ride an e-Motocross bike. Children can try out the bikes for themselves on a small course next to the Chrüterbeizli restaurant, with different options to suit their ages.
All equipment such as helmets, protectors and the bikes themselves are provided free of charge. The facility is open every Wednesday and Saturday afternoon from April to October between 15.00 and 18.00 hours.
The valley plane has two children’s playgrounds to explore. The playground in the village of Raron can be found at the intersection between Bietschgärtenstrasse and Stadelmattenstrasse. As well as standard park equipment such as swings, a spring rocker, climbing frame, slide, sand pit and a rope ladder, there are also plenty of benches and picnic tables.
The playground at the SBB station in Turtig had to be relocated due to the construction of a motorway. In the meantime, a new site has been found with the help of the Canton: on Rundeyaweg to the east of the Raplast building.
There is also a playground on Schulhausplatz in the village of St. German. The facilities are very similar to those in Raron, but also include a basketball court and football pitch.
