What was once covered in snow, is in Summer a sea of green. Just a short car ride up to the main station, the vast walking paths of the mountain await you. To attract more visitors during the Summer months, the ski slopes have now become walking trails for any level of experience. Here you can sample spectacular views of the 7 peaks of the beautiful Churfirsten mountains, the Walensee lake and beyond.

There’s a bouncy area for the kids, restaurants and cafes, and for true adrenaline junkies there is the Floomzer. The Floomzer claims to be the longest downhill toboggan ride in the world. It’s a 2 kilometre descent, a great use of the steep drop between half station and base station. The ride speed is controlled by you, so no matter whether you want to ride at speed or take it a little more sedately, the ride is a blast. Zoom down the mountain while getting beautiful views of the Swiss countryside. It will leave you exhilarated and your children wanting to do it again and again. If you want to get an idea see this short video:

Several varieties of combi passes for the gondolas and the rides are available, for further details please see here.

Overall, Flumserberg captures the beauty of the Swiss mountains in Winter and Summer. It provides avid amounts of entertainment for all seasons so that no matter when you come you will find something to do. A grand day out indeed!
