On the Betelberg Alpine experience, you can enjoy the following attractions:

Puzzle-solving fun on the Betelberg Detective Trail

Young and old alike will be in their element as they solve puzzles on the Leiterli Alpine Detective Trail. On this circular route, which takes around 45 minutes to complete, a range of puzzles can be solved with the help of a “treasure map”. At the end of the trail, the detectives encounter a treasure chest, at which point they have to enter the solution code and are rewarded with a gift. Puzzle-solving fun for the whole family.

Gondola cableway adventure with Mona, Flöckli and Moritz

Travelling in one of the twelve decoratively themed gondolas, your trip is guaranteed to be full of fun. Mona the cow, Flöckli the goat and Moritz the marmot will tell entertaining stories of their life on the Alpine meadow. During the ride up to Leiterli, you’ll learn a lot of new fascinating and amusing facts about the three animals.

For French-speaking guests, all of the texts are translated into French on the themed gondola cars.
The gondola cableway adventure was the recipient of the Swiss Mountain Award in 2013. This attraction may involve waiting times.

The Leiterli AlpKlang game

For once, you’re allowed to make a noise in the mountains! Visitors can make music using a genuine alphorn, a milk-churn percussion set, a glockenspiel, and other unusual instruments. Whatever you try, it’s sure to be fun...

Alpine sound ski lift

A crazy idea? Definitely! The Leiterli ski lift, located right next to the Betelberg gondola mountain station, has been transformed into an interactive Alpine piano. Simply hit the keys to produce different tunes. The ski-lift, which carries the skiers and snowboarders up to the slopes in winter, thus becomes a magical musical instrument in summer.

Alpine circular trail, Leiterli

Different and original: an approximately 45-minute-long easy circular walk, offering fantastic mountain views and twelve information and experience points that explain Alpine culture and the history of the Lenk area. The trail starts and finishes near the mountain station of the gondola cableway.

Alpine play area, Leiterli

Play on an Alpine telephone instead of an iPhone! The Alpine play area near the Leiterli mountain station offers all the fun that young visitors could hope for, including little wooden chalets, climbing frames, mesh swings, jumping mats and a slide. What’s more, little ones can communicate from one wooden chalet to the next by Alpine telephone. Meanwhile, their parents can relax as they watch them from the sun terrace of the mountain restaurant.

Marmot Trail

This magical walk is full of fun and a playful experience for all the family. The 3-kilometre route leads from the gondola cableway mountain station to the intermediate station at Stoss. Two barbecue spots are equipped with a grill and with wood. The three-section ticket (1st section: Lenk valley station – Stoos middle station / 2nd section: Stoos middle station – Betelberg mountain station / 3rd section: Stoos middle station – Lenk valley station) is the ideal cable-car ticket.

Observing marmots

During the summer, there’s a very good chance of seeing these cute Alpine creatures on the slopes around Lenk. With the right equipment, observing marmots is a natural experience that all of the family will enjoy.

Lynx Trail

On this 4-kilometre-long walk, you can observe, experience and play as you learn many interesting facts about the behaviour and lifestyle of the lynx. A barbecue spot on the route is equipped with a grill and with wood.

Alpine flower trail

The original Betelberg Alpine flower trail is situated at an altitude of 2,000 metres above sea level and starts at the Leiterli mountain station. Visitors can identify the unusually wide variety of flora with the help of 95 panels along the route. Unless weather conditions are very severe, the Alpine flower trail is open from July to September, with up to 70 flower species in bloom during July and August.

Special notes

  • The Marmot Trail is suitable for all-terrain pushchairs. Note, however, that the trail is a hiking route that covers an elevation difference of 300 m.
  • The Gondola cableway adventure with Mona, Flöckli and Moritz is also an ideal activity to select in bad weather.

Von der Bushaltestelle Lenk, Talstation Betelberg geht es bequem mit der Gondelbahn Betelberg zur Bergstation Leiterli. Die Bergstation ist Ausgangspunkt der Führung.
