Two trails lead to a tricky route search. On the 3 to 4-hour mountain route «Muntanella» from Churwalden via Heidbüel, the teams have to manipulate the weather and plunder the cheese stock to get the necessary hints. The shorter Heidsee lake trail «Anda» (about 2 hours) with underwater messages and controllable waterfalls provides much fun and adventure.

Using the personal fairy tale book, every child can take home their very own holiday experience in Lenzerheide as a digital picture book.

Your child will be photographed in front of a fairytale background at the Lenzerheide tourist office. The names of the child and the squirrel, which your child can choose, are registered. A digital book is then exported as a PDF and the individual story is sent to the parents.

The digital fairy tale book is available at the Lenzerheide tourist office in the mornings between 8.30 and 11.30 am and between 2.00 and 5.00 pm.
