Swiss Activities Tip

Discover the nature trail, the route of the charcoal piles or the planetary path. The planetary path is like a "walk through the stars". The 600 meters long path presents a planet model of our solar system in a scale of 1:10 billion. In addition, the path is suitable for families with strollers
