Of course there's a prize to win. Simply hand in the completed treasure map at the cash desk in the Sommerberg Panorama Restaurant and collect your prize!

Luis' marble run safari 

The glacier bug safari - the exciting adventure course in the Sommerberg hiking area - is now one attraction richer. Between the interactive stations, three wooden ball tracks and a ball tower make children's hearts skip a beat. Fascinated, the little ones observe and follow their wooden balls, which overcome numerous obstacles on their way to the finish.

No matter if you want to go through the wave course, the ringing carillon or through the narrow crevasse - with so many different possibilities, there is going to be no boredom! In the long ball jump you can even compete with friends, siblings or parents and place bets on whose ball will make the longest jump. In addition to the three marble run tracks in the area, glacier bug Luis is waiting for the little explorers in a marble run tower with loops, a marble crane, a climbing wall and much more at the entrance to Luis' marble run safari.

The funny wooden balls, on which of course glacier bug Luis is immortalized, are available for € 2. 00 in the ball machine and can be taken home as a souvenir.
