POI details

From the top station of the St. Niklaus - Jungen cable car, high above the Mattertal, your path leads you past the lake. On the left, follow the trail uphill through the larch forest in the direction of Jungental. It is not long before you reach the edge of the forest and follow the signposted path along the "flower panels". Your gaze wanders through the beautiful nature and you pause at the information boards. Despite the ascent to 2350 metres above sea level, you don't notice how time flies. Enjoy the fantastic mountain scenery with views of the high peaks and, of course, the flora.
