Alpine orienteering on the Niederhorn

Ideal for kids and for the young at heart! The Niederhornbahn funicular and cable car service offers three orienteering routes: the Hare path for beginners, the Roe Deer path for those with some experience, and the Lynx path for those with advanced skills.

For the different trails, the specially devised Niederhorn orienteering maps are provided, with their special signs and explanations. The maps together with their built-in stamp card can be obtained free of charge from the old mountain station of the Neiderhornbahn. After completing the three routes, you can drop the completed card in the competition pot and hope that you win first prize!
