Adventures on the weather dwarfs’ path

The 2.5 km long mountain trail takes you through the woods and meadows, but also over rough and smooth.

At each of the ten stations along the weather dwarfs’ path, you can use a viewpoint to discover an alp animal, which helps you to decode the weather message on the weather forecast card. The circular path is suitable for children as from school age. We also recommend good shoes. Grab the weather forecast map in one of the information offices of the Lenzerheide holiday region or at the mountain railway cash point in the portal Churwalden and explore the stations on the weather dwarfs’ path. As a reward for the decrypted weather message you get a little surprise.
