Rope park, toboggan run, leisure park and hiking trails – the Atzmännig offers varied days or even a whole weekend!
The two-seater chair lift takes you within 14 minutes to the alp Atzmännig 1200 m.a.s.l. There you can enjoy a magnificent panoramic view of the Linth plain, Lake Zurich, St.Gallen, Appenzell, Glarus, Schwyz and Bernese Alps. With good visibility you can see the Rigi, the Pilatus and even the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau.
Varied and well-marked hiking trails lead in different directions. The “Spatz Männi” adventure trail starts at the mountain station and leads in about an hour along the various play posts back to the valley station. Highly recommended is the approx. 3-hour round hike from the Atzmännig mountain station via the Tweralpspitz to Chrüzegg (mountain restaurant!) and back to the valley station.
The leisure park Atzmännig awaits you with trampolines, petting zoo, “Schiffli Pond”, go-cart track and many other attractions. Skill is needed in the Atzmännig rope park: Eight courses at dizzy heights promise fun and thrills. Thanks to the rustic Atzmännig Lodge and the original igloo-like PODhouses *), activities can be spread over several days. By the way: At the Atzmännig, birthday children (including adults) can use the chairlift and toboggan run as well as the slide tower for free!
*) The PODhouses – a kind of wooden igloo – are a comfortable alternative to camping. The equipment is small but nice: the wooden igloos with 2 to 6 beds offer enough space for the whole family. But of course you must not do without amenities like electricity or light even in the middle of nature. The PODhouses are well isolated and thanks to an electric heating, they may also be used in winter. A real adventure for outdoor fans or for those who want to become such. The PODhouses are secluded, situated on a small forest clearing close to the camping site at the Atzmännig base station. The toilets, washbasins and showers with free warm water are located directly near the camping washrooms.
Only a few steps to go to get breakfast at the Atzmännig Lodge restaurant. However, you are free to have your breakfast comfortably delivered to the wooden igloo in a breakfast box. For other meals, various other restaurants are close by. And if you would like to go for more adventure, use our beautifully set fireplace right below. We will provide a delicious «grill box» for you to use.
