Alpen-OL, Wandern mit Kindern

For great maneuverers, deft runners and smart map navigators

Study the map, analyze the terrain, and then make your way directly to the next stop! With adults and children alike, youngsters and senior citizens, there is no stopping them. The Alpine Orienteering Hike on the Niederhorn lets you find the appropriate route, which should be a lot of fun and a thrill for all generations. Life’s experience of senior citizens can be crucial at the right moment. The natural sense of orientation of the youngest visitors gets them to experience accomplishment at an early age and boosts their confidence. Three different paths, at various levels of difficulty, are available to choose from.

Information and map material, as well as stamping cards, are available at the old Mountain Station on the Niederhorn.

Have you found all the stops? Then, place the full stamping card in the urn at the old Mid-Station. At the end of the summer season we have a prize draw among all participants, with great prizes.
