Via a mountain path at the back of the valley, you reach the wildlife observation station on Alp Nidegg. Can you discover the chamois and ibex on the slopes of the Seehorn on the opposite side of the valley with a telescope?

The hike takes you through the habitat of many alpine animals. With a bit of luck, you will observe them during your ascent. In the game observation hut on Alp Nidegg, the ibex, chamois, golden eagle and black grouse introduce themselves and you learn interesting facts about these survival artists (in German only). Can you discover the ibex and chamois on the rocky slopes opposite with the telescope installed on site?
