Observing wildlife

Alpine Safari on the Niederhorn
Every morning, as the sun rises, life on the Niederhorn begins anew. The native wildlife wakes up and stroll through the Alps, eager to find food or homely togetherness. If you observe wildlife on the Niederhorn, you will experience this spectacle of nature at close hand. Chamois, ibex, marmots, sometimes rock ptarmigans. Observe native wild animals from close up with Swarovski Optik binoculars and in the process, watch how the black cock displays for the benefit of his chosen one. Experience the majestic charisma of a full-grown ibex. What sounds like a fable is real on the Niederhorn. Experience this and more when you observe wild animals on the Niederhorn.
The Wildlife observation tour is part of the . Interested parties can borrow one of the 6 binoculars provided by Swarovski Optik.
Make observing wildlife into a very special experience: on the previous day, spend the night at Berghaus Niederhorn.
