The Buiräbähnli to the alp of Sepp Niederberger and Fränzi Amrein
Bielen is a popular starting point for paragliders, indeed the alp of Sepp Niederberger and Fränzi Amrein and their three children is a paragliding mecca. Their property lies at an altitude of over 1110 meters above sea level and captivates with a fantastic view of the Engelberg valley. A place where not only Sepp and Fränzi feel at home. The farm is also home to several llamas, alpacas, sheep, chickens, geese, rabbits, cats and a dog. Working at this altitude is anything but easy, and the steep slopes make the job of haymaking difficult. They are visited by "time-out kids" who want to take a break from their difficult daily lives and experience the beautiful mountain scenery and mountain life on a family farm. At the mountain station there is also a small coffee house with a kiosk.
