Max Trax cycling circuit

Fun for children

Keep safe in traffic with Max

Max is a little badger who teaches children how to behave properly in traffic in a fun and easy-to-understand way.

The Max Trax circuit will return to the Gurten again this yearfFrom Friday, May 3 to Sunday, May 12 as well as from May 17 to 26, 2024. Both beginners and experienced young cycling fans can master the exciting cycling circuit. The cycle training is free and suitable for children of all ages. The circuit on the meadow opposite the toboggan run is supervised and open daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The circuit will remain closed in the event of rain or strong winds. Cycles and helmets can be borrowed on site, though availability is limited. We therefore recommend that you use your own equipment on the circuit. We are looking forward to seeing you, as is Max the badger.

Schools classes are also very welcome. Reserve an exclusive session with Max now through Agnes Scheidegger.

The course remains closed in case of rain or strong winds.
