Turn the family hike into a very personal treasure hunt. Searching has become very easy this summer: You can easily locate the black-nosed sheep on your smartphone. The sheep can be tracked with a GPS signal and found wherever they may be on the Gornergrat. The sheep are accompanied by shepherdess Deborah, who will be happy to answer your questions about the sheep and their summer on the alps, from Tuesdays to Sundays between 1.30 pm and 3.00 pm.
