*Zermatt: Authenticity, Customs & Tradition
Glacier Garden Dossen and hanging bridge
The glacier garden in Zermatt located above Furi provides as a witness of the last Ice Age an insight into a primeval mountain world. To gaze there are around 20 glacier potholes, a soapstone quarry, pioneer trees and erratic boulders in the woodland. Information panels explain the development.
A hanging bridge (100 meter long and 90 meter high) over the Gornera Gorge makes it easier and quicker to reach the glacier garden and the barbecue spot with a forest playground for children.
Interests can join geological excursion which take place every Tuesday (apart from 9th July 2013) from mid July to mid August.
