Rock Trail in Fäld

Theme trail

At eleven stations, the rocks of the Binn Valley are presented, which shape the landscape of the valley. Experiential elements such as a lithopone, a boulder or the place with the small men of stones make the trail very varied, even for children.

Along the little road from the Restaurant Imfeld to the mineral mine, you can experience an insight into the most important rocks of the Binntal. The trail is 1.25 km long and climbs 150 meters in altitude. The duration of the walk is about 30 minutes. Eleven information boards introduce you to the rocks of the valley. The rocks characterize the landscape of the Binntal and are the foundation for the diverse minerals.
The explanatory panels are aimed for laymen and largely dispense without technical terms (also suitable for children). Experts will find more detailed facts in the informative short texts.
At the adventure place, approximately in the middle of the trail, you can listen into a stone, play melodies on the lithopone, practice your climbing skills or linger on the place with the small little men of stones and build various works of art. Further up, there is a magnifier glass Station where various rocks can be admired from very close up.

More informations

At the end of the trail children can search for golden yellow pyrite (cat gold) on the "Klopfplatz" in front of the mineral quarry Lengenbach.
Open from May to October.
