Take a seat amid pristine nature at the new Box-seat Trail
Sit down, relax and enjoy glorious sweeping views on the new Box-seat Trail on the Hochwurzen. On a gentle hike from the Hochwurzen gondola lift mountain station to the summit at 1850 metres there are around 20 spots to take a break and savour the view from the vantage points of a series of unique benches. Each one is dedicated to a different theme so hikers can take the weight off their feet on, for example, the Lovers' bench, the Family bench and the Sunset bench.
A further highlight
Along the trail, in addition to these benches, you can also admire a number of hand-carved, life-sized animal sculptures. These sculptures will provide you with a wealth of information about the local fauna – prepare for an exciting experience!
A hike for all the family
The hike along the new Box-seat Trail is ideal for all the family: the gently undulating circular route via shady, romantic woodland paths up to the summit of the Hochwurzen takes around one hour to complete, combining exercise, education and fun for hikers of all ages in a stunning natural setting!
Down the mountainside on a mountain go-kart
Back at the mountain station of the Hochwurzen gondola lift you can travel the 7 km back down the mountainside in a mountain go-kart. Riding a kart is great fun and an exciting alternative way of racing back down into the valley. Anyone who prefers to travel at a more leisurely pace can simply take the gondola lift back to the Hochwurzen valley station.
