From August 2021 there will be something very special: a theme and adventure trail «Geissä Wäg» in Sattel-Hochstuckli. What is absolutely ingenious about this is that this trail tells a lot of exciting stories about goats and leads from Mostelberg to the Blüemlisberg goat farm.

The sweet little saanen goat
The sweet little Saanen goat lives with her family on the beautiful Blüemlisberg goat farm, high up at 1,200 metres above sea level, in the Sattel-Hochstuckli hiking and ski region.

She can play around and climb about to her heart’s content with all her friends in the big barn, which was built in 2017. But her favourite thing is to be outside in nature, chomping gleefully on juicy grass, flowers and herbs. She enjoys the warm sunshine and loves the visitors – young and old – whom she meets on the Blüemlisberg mountain.

Lots of families with children, in particular, hike along the wonderful trail over hill and dale to her farm. That’s because they can not only eat delicious cake there – but also feast on the best goat’s milk ice cream in the world.



The «Geissä Wäg» theme and adventure trail

The Goat Trail runs from Mostelberg (Sattel-Hochstuckli AG mountain gondola station) to the Blüemlisberg goat farm.

The themed adventure trail includes seven interactive stations that playfully explain the world of goats. Fun, games and education for the whole family.

The total walking time for the trail is around 45 minutes with children -  but this doesn’t include stops at the interactive stations or any breaks at campfires or viewpoints.

Each child is given a Little Goat Book at the valley/mountain gondola station or at the Blüemlisberg goat farm which – besides explaining everything about the Goat Trail – contains a picture to colour in as well as a slip for the solution to the puzzle. That’s because there’s a puzzle to solve at every station.

Anyone who figures out the solution can take part in a competition.
