Alpen-OL, Wandern mit Kindern

Rocky gang – the adventure begins!

Hidden paths, cool climbing rocks, a mysterious forest, fascinating wild animals, stunning alpine plants – the area around the Niederhorn offers many interesting adventures. No one else knows the Niederhorn better than the four friends Rocky, Happy, Yummy and Lenny. Together, they are the Rocky-gang.

Their leader is Rocky, a strong brave ibex. When he climbs over the steep rocks, Happy is too scared to even watch him. Happy is not the bravest rabbit but he knows all the stories that are being told in the forest. If the Rocky-Gang is hungry, Yummy will take care of it. The shy deer is known as a gourmet and always finds the most delicious treats on the Niederhorn. Lenny the lynx is always up for a surprise: He is a master in sneaking up to his friends and loves to give them a scary moment.

Looking out for new paths and exploring the area around the Niederhorn is the favorite activity of Rocky and his friends. Every member of the Rocky-Gang has its own path with different levels of difficulty.

This path is perfect as a warm up preparing for all the other paths that are waiting for you on the Niederhorn. Be like the Rocky-Gang and be considerate of the area, as the Niederhorn is a nature reserve…

Happys Path – Easy

Happy is not the bravest rabbit but he knows all the stories that are being told in the forest. The difficulty of Happys Path is “easy”, perfect for the youngest.

Yummys Path – Medium

If the Rocky-Gang is hungry, Yummy will take care of it. The shy deer is known as a gourmet and always finds the most delicious treats on the Niederhorn. The difficulty of Yummys Path is “medium”, perfect for young explorers that know how to get around in rougher terrain.

Lennys Path – Hard

Lenny the lynx is always up for a surprise: He is a master in sneaking up to his friends and loves to give them a scary moment by jumping out of nowhere. As its common for a lynx, Lenny has got very sensible ears. How practical, if you are as curious as he is. The difficulty of Lennys path is “hard”, suitable for real specialists only.
