Worth going up in the cable car just for the toboggan ride at the top. Our girls 6 and 9 just loved it - I think it 15 francs for 6 rides is very reasonable for children and for adults 5 rides for 23 francs. Highlight of the girls day it is then a nice walk back down the mountain... More

We always take our kids here on trips to Switzerland. They are now teenagers but still enjoy it. You ride a small cable car up. We go just for the rodelbahn/bobsled, so I can't comment on the hiking up here. The bobsled is never very crowded and fun for all ages.

En route to Barreg, stopped for lunch. The weather was not great that day, so the views were limited The lunch was good, and waitress very nice. Good spot to take a break on a long hike

Wanted to have a go at tobogganing and it was one of the best and thrilling things I have ever done and for the small sum of 5 Swiss francs.

A short cable car ride and a great start to the spectacular glacier gorge walk lots of wild flowers and amazing views, culminating in the terrace cafe at Barreg with a breathtaking position overlooking the glacier.

Beautiful hike to great vistapoint and nice restaurant. The hike takes 1,5 hrs from the cablecar or 2,5 hrs from groundlevel. Its quiet easy for people in good shape and safe. The Baregg restaurant has a great location.
