Royal summit and trail experiences

In the summer months, the sunlit meadows and alpine pastures are filled with flowers. And on hot days, the mountains are the perfect place to cool down. Explore the different adventure trails with your family. Ever blown an alphorn or milked a cow? Why not give these a try on the Lieselotte trail. The Royal Walk is another highlight, a trail that leads you from Männlichen Summit station to the panoramic Männlichen Summit, the so-called "Bira". Only 120 metres in altitude stand between the Mountain Summit station and the full royal summit experience.
