Watch Swiss stone pine wood balls roll into motion through the world’s largest wooden track at Kugelwald on Glungezer Mountain and bring the family for their grand Summer Fest.
The Kugelwald Adventure World, literally “Ball Forest”, on Glungezer Mountain is close to one of the largest stone pine tree woodlands in Europe. This large wild area of ancient woodland is dotted by centuries-old stone pines, thus it’s only natural that the world’s largest wooden track and all experience stops there are made of Swiss stone pine. If you want to watch the balls drop down — click-clack — you are strongly recommended to join the grand Summer Fest on July 4, 2021 from 10:00am to 4:00pm. Loads of fun and entertainment are guaranteed.
Close to the “Ball Forest”, you’ll find the Interpretive Forest Classroom that provides an opportunity to learn more about the wildlife, geological formations and forest types of the region. In this pristine forest, kids will learn the difference between spruce and fir, Swiss stone pine and larch from a trained naturalist. Zwugl, the mascot of the Ball Forest, will entertain the little ones. Moreover, a children’s concert featuring Bernhard Fibich is scheduled, too. The Kugelwald Ball Forest is located at “Halsmarter” mid-terminal of Glungezer Chair Lift.
