Toboggan run

The toboggan run can be found at the exit from the Gurten funicular top station. For young or old, a ride on the toboggan is great fun.

Ball run

On Stefan Grünfelder’s legendary ball run, children can spend an hour levering, turning, winding and jiggling until the game is done from start to finish. Stretching 300 meters and including countless fascinating mechanisms and sections of track fans of all ages will be absolutely delighted.

Climbing frames

On the Gschtelasch, a large wooden construction with nets, climbing tunnel and slide, children can jump around and let off steam for hours on end. The sturdy “Crealino” concrete dragon is also ideal for playing, climbing and jumping around. Other obstacles with different levels of difficulty, a slide and plenty of places to hide on the playground offer hours of fun.

The climbing frames and the entire playground are freely accessible every day at no cost.
