The family adventure to discover and play.
Discover and experience the STATION. The all-weather family adventure. A unique workshop space to explore, discover, play and be creative. The STATION, the new name of the old fire brigade magazine, is not a top or bottom station, but an experience station. It offers an alternative to the mountain world, the ski slopes, après-ski or theme trails, without becoming a competitor.
In the STATION, everything revolves around the topic of cable cars and ropes. Here, children and youths can craft and try things out – away from social media, internet, computers and television. They can create something with their own hands, move around and discover and observe lots of new things. There is also a big indoor slide, a labyrinth table and divers marble runs, who will make children’s eyes lighten up.
In addition, it plays with a theme that attracts guests to the region and gives work to many locals – the countless kilometres of ropes and dozens of cable cars. The STATION is a new and unconventional offer.
It welcomes tall and small people, young and old, to forget time and dive into a small world that works a little differently. Visitors can live out their creativity and create something of their own. A prototype was built, which opened at the end of 2020, but is far from being finished. Further development is part of the STATION principle. It should respond to the needs of the visitors and try out different approaches. Not only the visitors come to fiddle around, but the whole project is a courageous attempt, an unconventional innovation, a promising experiment.
A Covid certificate obligation applies.
