June 4, 2019
Together with the Julen family from Zermatt, you can take a hike to visit their black-nosed sheep on the Schwarzsee. The family runs the largest black penny breeding in the world with more than 300 animals. In summer, they graze on the lush alpine meadows above the Stafelalp. And that's where you can visit the herd.Meeting point for the hike is at the entrance of the Romantik Hotel Julen in Zermatt. From here you can hike along with the group to the cable car. Together you drive up to the station Schwarzsee. Here not only an idyllic landscape with fascinating views awaits you, but also a walk of about 45 minutes to the flock of sheep grazing at the foot of the Matterhorn. In peace and quiet you can watch the cute black-nosed sheep in their natural habitat and let Paul-Marc Julen tell you stories about the sheep. At the end of the hike, you will be served white wine from the region and dried meat.The hike always takes place on Wednesdays from 9.30am to 4pm. You can sign up until 8 pm the night before at the Romantik Hotel Julen.
