Up here, you can learn about Fruttli and enjoy the playgrounds and their attractions. As a further incentive you can solve tasks for the marmot and receive a reward at the end.

Ten info panels around Lake Melch provide fun for the whole family. Learn how marmots moves around their territory and try to walk on stones or in a tube to find the solution to the task. Can you climb as well as a marmot? And how do you find your way around a labyrinth? The marmot can do this very well, because that's where the nest is usually hidden.

Along the way, you'll find telescopes for observing the animals in the wild. It's fun learning about marmots - whatever your age.

You can make the trek last longer, for instance by taking a break at a barbecue spot.
