Take the Pizol cable car from the valley station in Wangs to the mountain station in Furt, where the MounTeens Detective Trail starts and ends. The pure hiking time is approx. 60 minutes. Reading the history and the stations can be expected to take between 90 and 120 minutes. Especially in the water forest it is possible to linger and play longer.

The MounTeens - these are the thirteen year olds Sam, Lena, Matteo and Amélie, who solve detective adventures courageously and astutely. The MounTeens are on a hiking trip with the school class at Pizol. Shortly before they are sent by their teacher in groups of four on a scavenger hunt, a completely frightened hiker appears who reports loud screams. Is a mountain ghost up to his ears here?

The exclusive detective hiking book is available at the cash desk of the Wangs valley station. The MounTeens Detective Trail begins and ends at the mountain station in Furt. For each of the 10 stations there is a corresponding chapter. If you prefer to have the story read to you, you can scan a QR code with your smartphone next to each chapter title.

Author’s recommendation

If you like, you can take one of the five gondolas in the MounTeens look and get to know Amélie, Sam, Lena and Matteo better during the trip. The original voices from the radio play, matching music and interactive puzzles make the experience unforgettable!
