The Brändlen cable car takes you from Wolfenschiessen to the high plateau Brändlen, which lies 1200 m above sea level. Arrived on the Brändlen, you immerse yourself in the harmonious mountain farm of the Schmitter family.
With the Buiräbähnli to the home of the Schmitter family
Ueli Schmitter and his family have built a little paradise at 1200 m above sea level. In this idyll, the 25 or so Dexter cattle (Irish highland cattle) feel right at home. This breed is particularly suited to the steep mountain slopes. In addition, the Dexter cattle cause hardly any damage to the land and are therefore sustainable from a farming point of view. The organic meat is sold directly on the farm, which has a high beta-carotene value. For the Schmitter family, the cable car is part of their normal everyday life and connects their home with village life. There is no access road. Besides the cattle, other animals enjoy life on the mountain. With a little luck you might even discover the peacock, which belongs to the Brändlen like a farm dog. It is also possible to stay overnight by appointment.
