Hiking & nature

Winter adventure trail on the Lauchernalp

A combination of play and learning against a magnificent mountain backdrop

There are ten information and experience stations on a wide range of winter topics along the approximately 5 km-long trail, including “The Miracle Of Snow” and “Avalanches – The White Peril”. You can learn where Alpine animals stay in winter, look at snow crystals through a kaleidoscope and guess which pelts belong to which animals at special “feely-boxes”. The winter adventure trail is perfect for families and children.

Travel comfortably by train to Goppenstein. From Goppenstein station the post bus takes you to Wiler, valley station. Then, continue with the cable car to Lauchernalp.
