The adventure playground by the upper terminus of the Illga-St.Karl aerial cableway has lots of new attractions. Make sure you look in on the witch.

On the way you have to find the seven children of the ladybird family who have hidden themselves in various places. The next challenge follows at the carillon. Test your musical talent and try to play a song on the different bells.

The trail continues over green meadows to the actual destination, the Balmli activity and barbecue area, with its swings, hanging ropes and a rope bridge leading up to the Adlerhorst. After you've had your picnic, there's a short descent back to where you started, the cableway terminus in the village.
