The Rigi Scheidegg playground is just five minutes’ walk from the upper terminus of the Kräbel-Rigi Scheidegg aerial cableway. It boasts a range of attractions for climbing, jumping and general enjoyment, plus there’s an adventure ship, in-ground trampolines and climbing facilities. Sip your coffee at the Berggasthaus Rigi Scheidegg while keeping an eye on the children playing. You could also pop across to the Rigi Scheidegg Arche vantage point to admire the views or grill something at the Gruebi Rigi Scheidegg barbecue spot. Toilets and firewood are provided.
Watch out! There’s water about! This playground has a pond, water pumps, swings and climbing frames. Located on the Rossweid, it has a moorland theme, and the puzzles and experiments on the Sonnentau learning trail – plus use of the Explorer Pass – will ensure you and your children get to know the moor better. The Mooraculum is adjacent to the Sörenberg-Rossweid gondola cableway and the Berggasthaus Rossweid. Here’s an idea for the return trip: hire a bikeboard at the cableway terminus and zoom back down to the village.
There’s a smell of wood in the air just a few steps from the Beckenried-Klewenalp aerial cableway terminus. The playground at Klewenalp is devoted to the theme of wood. It’s where you and the kids can climb over obstacles, practise balancing on the playground equipment and have a go at Swiss wrestling in the sawdust ring. Find out about wood and Klewenalp’s forests from the infopanels, or discover the area on foot and go on a Goldi family safari.
The journey’s the reward: that’s 110% true on the spectacular journey to the highest playground in Canton Schwyz. Located on the Fronalpstock at alt. 1922 m, you get there in three stages: with the world’s steepest funicular railway and the Stoos-Fronalpstock chairlifts. Or you can hike up to the summit on the well-maintained footpaths. Awaiting you on the Fronalpstock are panoramic views for you and a fun playground for the kids. Refreshments are available on the summit restaurant’s terrace.
Lucerne's mini local mountain is the Sonnenberg. Rather than walk up it, you can take the vintage funicular railway from Kriens. Not far from the summit terminus is a shady children's playground with a zipwire, climbing wall, slide and swings. Picnic places and barbecue spots are also provided in the vicinity. If you prefer, there’s minigolf at the Hotel Sonnenberg just below the terminus.
