Moléson - Via ferrata

One of the most spirited and most spicy routes, on the massive mountain local to the town of Gruyères.

One of the most spirited and most spicy routes, on the massive mountain local to the town of Gruyères. It is a surprisingly logical North Wall route with perfect safety - à la française- and a few vertical and overhanging sections. There are also repeated sections of soil and grass, making the Voie Hohl (to give it its proper name) more suited to the high summer. The climb to the start point and the descent are steeply sloping, but have good safety. There is a charge for the Moléson via ferrata; 4 Swiss francs for adults, 2 Swiss francs for children; the money is used to maintain the via ferrata.

Bondasca and Albigna Valley

Though largely neglected by tourists in the past, this secluded area has long been an insider tip for climbers and mountaineers.

Knies Children's Zoo

In no other zoo are the animals so close to the visitor as they are in the children's zoo in Rapperswil. Depending on the species, the animals can be touched, petted, fed or ridden. The childrens' zoo is thus the ideal destination for a family or a school trip.
