Geheimtipp

In the most beautiful sunshine between 12.00 and 15.00 o'clock, the marmots usually treat themselves to a siesta. Ideally, therefore, you should visit them before or after. Binoculars are definitely recommended. The marmots usually hibernate from mid-September.

Sicherheitshinweis

On beautiful sunny days marmots love to take a siesta from 12 to 15. So, the best time to see them is before or after this break. To grasp more intimate details it is advisable to use a telescope. Typically, marmots hibernate from mid-September.
