At the fairy tale fountain  we step  into the cave. Here the  story of 'Murmli' the little marmot and of his adventures in the mountains is told. The path goes on, taking us to the talking root man . He only answers when you throw stones at him - the more you hit him, the more he talks! The next stop is the photoboard . Here, mum and dad can take photos of the kids together with Murmli and the bear family. It goes on: It just might happen that the sleeping bear  will all of a sudden wake up, move and start to growl while the children are making themselves comfortable on his back. The cooing owl  sits on a bench and  not only speaks, but also sings as well! And right at the end, there's a wonderful highlight for the kids: the Murml cave  with living room, bedroom and kitchen!
