Whether it's two exciting kilometres downhill on the toboggan run or three levels up using your own strength: Both attractions are the icing on the cake of a summer excursion in the Swiss mountains.
Tip: the giant bouncy cushion at Prodalp mountain restaurant right next to the CLiiMBER climbing tower.

Meanwhile their parents kick back on the sun terrace of the COLORS – Restaurant and Bar, from where they can keep an eye on their little ones at all times.
