With the Buiräbähnli to the farm of Edith Wicki- Waser and her son.
The cable car from Oberrickenbach takes you up to the Schmiedsboden farm at 1215 m above sea level. Edith Wicki-Waser manages the farm together with her son with 7 mother cows, 7 calves, goats, chickens, cats and during the summer months still rabbits. In summer, the animals are on the 65-hectare Fulenwasen Alp in Bannalp. The alp is situated at 1800 m above sea level and goes up to 2300 m above sea level. On average there are 46 head of cattle and about 25 sheep on the alp. The alp is managed by the alpine farmer Wendel Waser and punctually at 21.00 o'clock his voice sounds at the daily prayer call. In addition to caring for the animals, there is also work on the slopes with mowing, haying or tending the fields for the animals. A lot of work, but the two manage it with heart and soul. The railroad is in operation all year round.
