Dwarf Trail

Zwärgliweg – the way of the dwarves


It was lunchtime and the sun shone brightly over the dwarf village in the mountains. The children were playing and laughing, as they did every day at this time. Pina and her friends Timo, Rick and Lolo were playing hide-and-seek by the old oak tree. “What’s this?” called Timo suddenly, pointing at something red shining among the moss. Take part in the fascinating story about the secret of this glowing red stone. This magical hike for children begins at the cableway’s mountain station and takes you to various locations on the Bannalp, amidst breath-taking mountain scenery. You can easily stop for lunch during the hike as the Zwärgliweg leads past fire pits for barbecuing, situated directly by the Bannalpsee lake. There is a supply of firewood for the pits at the point where the mountain stream enters the Bannalpsee. Ask at the cash desk for discounted family tickets. We wish you an enjoyable, relaxing time on the Bannalp.

Since the Zwärgliweg is a natural path we do not recommend attempting to take along prams or pushchairs.

The Zwärgliweg has seven stop-offs where children can make discoveries and see something new.

The route starts at the Bannalp mountain station of the Fell-Chrüzhütte cableway.


This circular route with magnificent views starts at the Oberfeld alp and follows the Geissen path. Take a picnic or snack along for a truly wonderful hike.
