“Kugelwald” forest on the Glungezer

In the alpine world of experience on the Glungezer mountain, the mascot “Zwugl” waits for you.

At the “Halsmarter” intermediate station of the Glungezer, local mountain of Tulfes and popular hiking and skiing area, a very particular world of experience was founded at 1,560 m asl. The so-called “Kugelwald” (Marble Forest) offers the worlds only wooden ball run in the open countryside!

But the 8,000 sqm big world of experience has even more to offer. A big tree house, a place where the kids can build by themselves, sound elements, a classroom in the forest and a magic tree are the highlights. Those who want to take a rest can find an own relaxation area. Tables and sitting accommodations are ideal to do a picnic and the near Halsmarter tavern offers delicious local dishes.

Only natural wood was used to realise the “Kugelwald” forest in countless hours of volunteer work. It is located at the beginning of one of the biggest Swiss pine populations of Europe. Also the Zirbenweg, the Stone Pine Path, proceeds through this particular landscape. Every year in June, when the season starts, the mascot “Zwugl” waits for young and old visitors at the summer festival.
