Lush meadows, singing alphorns, cowbells and cheeky marmots

Lieselotte is finally taking a holiday. For this, the famous cow from a small village in Germany has taken a really long journey. Lieselotte and her friends, the chickens, are therefore pleased to welcome numerous visitors on their theme trail.

Already the journey to Männlichen is a little adventure. From Grindelwald the longest gondola lift in the world takes young and old to the top. From Wengen the «Royal Ride» takes you up the mountain. Lieselotte is already waiting for the guests. Her alpine playground offers many opportunities to let off steam. But beware. The 1.5 hour hike still needs some energy.

There are many exciting things to discover on the hiking trail. Lieselotte and the chickens are amazed. They enjoy the beautiful landscape, the view of the snow-covered mountain peaks and the 13 play stations to the full. With so much fun and games, hiking is particularly enjoyable.
