This playful exploration of climate phenomena is fun for the whole family. The Zermatt children’s mascot, Wolli, lends a hand. The trip starts off with a ride up the Gornergrat, followed by plenty of surprises!
Who can solve the puzzle of the seven missing glacier fleas? “Wolli and the climate detectives” is a mystery that starts at Zermatt Tourism, beside Zermatt’s railway station, with an audio guide and map. The ride on the Gornergrat Bahn cog railway is full of mystery as well as beauty. After a stop at the observation platform, it’s back down to Rotenboden for the walk to Riffelberg. Wolli, the Valais Blacknose sheep, and his friends, the squirrel, the alpine chough, the stone man and the Matterhorn, set seven puzzles along the way.
As a result, the walk is great fun for kids, too. Will the young climate detectives manage to crack the code to the treasure chest on their return to the village? There’s a surprise waiting for them in the chest, located at the tourist office on Bahnhofplatz, by the station.
Participation on the climate audio trail is, in principle, free. However every family member will require a train ticket for the Gornergrat Bahn.
There are various Wolli souvenirs to buy in the Tourist Office at the train station so that Wolli can go with you on your adventures.
Additional information and recommendations are available from the guest information centre on Bahnhofplatz (by the railway station).
