  • We were five up on the Pfänder, went down. Three children 4-8 and two adult 14,80 ascent. Who did animals in the wild animal park, the trails and gorgeous views something sorry.

  • The local mountain of the Lake Constance attracts one again and again. Even the cable car ride to the Summit with its impressive views is an experience. Once at the top you can use many hiking trails and explore the area for hours. A Wildlife Park and a bird of prey station round off the package. Furthermore, one can follow the cheese trail and learn a lot about the manufacture of cheese from that region. Also, the cheese, and other dairy products are available for purchase. To do this you will find mountain dairies. Use milk from the Alpine region. Also no silage feed are fed in winter.
