If you have a child 7 - 12, they will LOVE Valberg and you will too! Around the Square (in summer) there is Luge run, a fun tramp, a inflatable playground, a multi level Mountain Climbing experience, pool, ping pong, judo, movies, horse back riding, ETC ETC
The square is literally spinning with children of all ages on bicycles. Our son could not stop bouncing the whole time we were there.
We missed le sentier planetaire, a 1 1/2 hour hike around wonderful depiction of the solar system. There apears to be wonderful hiking and camping in this area also.
The Tourist office located on the square is very helpful also.
Go down a concrete track on a plastic sled at crazy speed!
Equipment: Don't do like an idiot we saw..put a helmet on your toddler if your going to have it ride with you..
Your surrounded by mountain and forest.. so go ahead and take a hike!
But equip yourself well as the midday sun can be VERY hot!!
Mont Blanc is also reasonable to do by car if you need a stronger challenger..but go slow as the road turns a lot..so much, it made me sick
Fondest memory: Waking up at 6am by myself...gettin out on the already hot patio in my pyjama bottom to welcome the sun and then go out hiking or chasing lizards!
