Pizol in summer: a wonderland for hikers. One of the finest panoramic mountain hikes is the five-lake walk. Other walks such as the Bettlerweg, two-lake walk, Garmil heights trail and panoramic high-altitude trail are sure to quicken the pulse of every true hiker.
Have fun on the comfortable circular trail (roughly 2½ hrs.), looking for all the goats belonging to Peter, Heidi’s goat-herd friend. The exciting activities along the route are sure to keep you entertained, including the Alpine horn, the goat’s leap and, of course, the children’s Kneipp water treatment facility. Comfortable, well-developed path up to Alp Schwarzbüel, suitable for pushchairs. The fun begins with the mountain trip in the charmingly designed Heidi gondolas. At the “Wasserwald” play area in an alluring woodland clearing in Furt, water jets, marble runs, adjustable water courses and the birdie village invite all walkers to come and play. The waterfall and stream have been inventively integrated into the play area. Arrive via the Orakelbrunnen at Furt mountain station.
