Kreuzboden (2397m) and Kreuzboden Lake offer enjoyable encounters with nature. Visitors will find resting places, hammocks, picnic sites with char-grills, a refuge and much more. There’s plenty for kids, too. The Hohsi Land play area, petting zoo and water park are all big hits with the little ones. Kreuzboden is also the starting point for various themed hikes and alpine trails, the Jägihorn via ferrata and the 11-kilometre-long Monster Trotti scooter descent.
