Gnome trail to Montpelon mountain farm


Have fun discovering nature on the gnome trail at Montpelon mountain farm – open May to October.

From May to October the playful gnomes will lead you on a voyage of discovery. The gnome trail markers guide you from Gänsbrunnen to Montpelon mountain farm: both the young and young-at-heart can experience nature through the eyes of a gnome. And there's plenty to see and do along the way.

The walk itself takes around 30 minutes. However, the little gnomes encourage you to stop a while, allowing you to take as long as you like to complete the trail.  There are benches for you to rest on and a barbecue spot by the large play area.  On completing the trail, every child receives a “Nature and Gnomes Certificate” as a souvenir.
