Starting point is at the primary school  in Sautens (above the church). From there, you walk uphill along a forest path to the next stop. You'll meet many animals as the bee, the butterfly or the ant. After the path over the meadows we continue into the forest, where you meet more animals as the squirrl or the woodpecker. In the end, you pass by a playground. If there is no snow and warm temperatures, you can also play there in winter. From the playground you walk down bakc to the primary school.
