Activities & attractions

This bustling Alpine village offers a wide range of holiday activities ideal for families, novices, keen amateurs and professionals – turning every stay into an unforgettable experience.


Climbing fans will find this via ferrata route short, steep and exposed. The beginning is a vertical, after that there is an overhang that will require some upper arm strength. The final steep face ends with another short slightly overhanging stretch. „Zittergrat“ complements the Brunnistöckli. Both via ferrata converge at the top into the same route.

"Zittergrat“ is a good for preparing climbers for other via ferratas such as Fürenwand and Graustock. Strong upper arms are a plus!
