Enjoy yourself on the only weatherman hiking trail in Switzerland!

 

At 14 stations, the Weatherman Trail shows you how the Muotathal meteorologists observe nature and how they predict the weather forecasts half a year in advance.

 

Above all else, weatherman hiking is about enjoying good entertainment, observing nature - and returning home one beautiful experience the richer.
