Health in the Alps - Donkey Rides

Wellness uf der Alp

The starting point for this experience is the Schwanden railway station. The bus company Sernftal takes you to the valley station of the Kies-Mettmen aerial cableway. After a short trip, you're already in the oldest nature reserve in Europe. The walk takes you up to the idyllic Berglimattsee. If you want to cool off, take a refreshing bath in this small mountain lake. Then head down the steep descent to the Berglialp. The entire walk takes 3 hours (without breaks). Then your wellness holiday starts: relax in a larch wood tub, enjoy the panorama and feel the warm herbal bath reinvigorate you. You'll feel like a new person thanks to the wholesome alpine fare and a fantastic night in the alp.

On the donkey ride, you and your alpine herdsman will strike out on your sweet-tempered donkey to the loveliest and most untouched spots in the Berglialp. All your senses can drink in the beautiful and authentic. Take a big bite of sausage and bread at the campfire. Arrive back at the alpine cabin 3 hours later loaded with extraordinary memories. The descent back to the bus station in Matt takes about 1.5 hours.
