Heidi Path on Pizol Mountain

Discovery Trail with Children’s Kneipp Facility and Barefoot Path

The adventures on the Heidi Path already begin at the valley station in Bad Ragaz where small goat stables create the right mood. The children can look for a number of wooden goats along the way and when they find them, they can participate in a contest.

The Heidi Path is a well-built loop trail leading from the Pardiel mountain station to Alp Schwarzbüel and back. With children, the walk takes about 1 ½ hours. It is suitable for baby carriages all the way to Alp Schwarzbüel.

There are some exciting activities to be discovered along the way, such as the alpine call, the goat’s leap and the hammock forest. The Kneipp facility and the Barefoot Path touch every sense of both children and adults. And just before you reach Alp Schwarzbüel there is a fantastic playground with barbeque stations, a great place to spend some time. A trip to “Heidi’s Stilles Örtchen” (Heidi’s loo) at the beginning of the Heidi Path is a visit of a different kind, but well worth it.

Directions: Gondola Pizol Bad Ragaz–Pardiel (15 min.)

Tip: The kids will be excited to ride one of the five Heidi gondola cars. A terrific colouring book (“Heidi and her friends on Pizol mountain”) is available for CHF 2.50 at the ticket windows of the valley stations.
