The Brienz-Meiringen-Hasliberg region is playing host to the fourth festival of dwarves on June 8 and 9.This content was published on May 29, 2002 - 08:43
The two-day event will explore the mystical world of dwarves through games, drama and a special walk.
The walk, which takes around two hours, stretches from the Mägisalp over the Gummenalp and ends up at the Bidmi mountain restaurant. On the way, walkers will learn all about the life of Muggestutz, the oldest of the dwarves said to inhabit the Hasliberg.
Once at Bidmi, younger visitors will have the opportunity to meet the animals in the children's zoo, take part in a painting competition, and perhaps meet Muggestutz himself!
Small and large appetites can be satisfied at the Bidmi café, as well as at the Mägisalp and Bidmi mountain restaurants, which for the duration of the festival will be offering special "dwarf meals". Packed lunches are also available from the Mägisalp restaurant.
Visitors looking for a spot of relaxation can sit back and enjoy the Loosli puppet theatre's performance of "Muggestutz the Hasliberg dwarf" in the Hotel Victoria.
For those who want to spread the enjoyment over two days, a special offer is available including one night's bed and breakfast accommodation plus cable railway ticket and theatre tickets for two adults and two children.
