Erlebnishof Fronalp

From 13 September 2021, the interior rooms will be closed.

The modern farm was opened on 21 June 2014 and has since been operated as Erlebnishof Fronalp by Swiss Holiday Park. Many native animals, some of them ProSpecieRara breeds, live on the small farm, which is located on our grounds. A highlight are the horse riding offers. All around the horse there are exciting and unforgettable experiences for day and overnight guests. Ideal for riding holidays in Switzerland.

Philosophy - species-appropriate and yet full of exciting experiences At Erlebnishof Fronalp the animals are kept in a species-appropriate manner so that they remain healthy and also have their rest periods. Nevertheless, visitors can experience exciting things here. They are integrated into everyday farm life and children learn in a playful way how a real farm works. They learn where milk comes from, how cheese is produced or how a baby calf is born.

We show you a typical Swiss farm.

In addition to keeping animals, products are also made at Erlebnishof Fronalp. Yoghurt and cheese are made from fresh milk, spices from fresh herbs.

Individual homemade products are available in the shop.

Feeding of the animals The animals are fed by the farmer. We invite you to watch the feeding.

Farm-Infoweg On the whole area of the Erlebnishof Fronalp there are more than 12 big boards with interesting information about the farm and its animals. Did you know, for example, that a cow drinks up to 100 litres of water a day or that a Swiss person drinks an average of 380 litres of milk a year? Experience this exciting tour and learn more about farming.

Milking At Erlebnishof Fronalp you can watch milking directly in the evening. As a rule, milking takes place from 17.00 - 17.30 hrs. We ask you to be quiet during milking so that the cows are not disturbed by noise.

Calves In addition to the horses and cows, there are also calves in the calf box. The young cows are a magnet for the smallest guests and are on the calf pasture when the weather is nice.

Inclusion in the weekly programme Various activities for families and children around the Erlebnishof Fronalp are included in the weekly programme.

No farm without cows At Erlebnishof Fronalp, cows of the original Brown Swiss and Jersey breeds graze on the pastures and provide the milk that is processed into various products on the farm. Calves are also reared. Not only the children will enjoy the young animals.

Climbing artists Opposite the large stable where the horses and cows are housed is the new goat pen. Goats from ProSpecieRara are at home there:

  • Graubünden goat
  • Capra Grigia
  • Nera Verzasca
  • Peacock goat

The goats are bred so that the guests can always look forward to young "little goats".

Chickens - the valuable farm animals Chickens from ProSpecieRara have also found a new home with us:

  • Swiss chicken

The eggs fresh from the farm will enrich the breakfast buffet at the Swiss Holiday Park.

On a farm, which is visited by many children, rabbits can not be missing. The cute long ears make children's eyes sparkle.
