Alpe Nimi

Nestled in the Alps of Southern Switzerland, Alpe Nimi operates as a rural dairy farm and provides food and basic mile-high accommodation to hikers.

Most notably, it is home to a multicultural ensemble of goats and pigs, who happily share their land with a horse and a donkey.

The goats were very excited to see Dachshund Daddy and his sweaty, salty backpack. Yummy!

Can you see the piggies milling about among the goats?

I hope I'll get to hike to Alpe Nimi with Dad at some point!

Dachshund Daddy's note: Alpe Nimi can be reached on foot from the towns of Gordevio and Maggia in the Maggia Valley. It takes 4-5 hours of hard work, but it's so worth it!


  1. Wow...that scene looks like something from a movie. Hard to imagine there is such beauty in the world. Looks so peaceful!

  2. What a beautiful place. Hope you get to go there.

  3. Oh what a wonderful place. Tootsie you must make Dachshund Daddy take you there - I'm sure he won't mind carrying you if the going gets tough. Imagine what fun you could have with the pigs and goats while the humans admire the stupendous views.
    Toodle pip!
    Bertie (who would just love to accompany you - as would Gail).

  4. We'll stick with the pictures....the 4-5 hours of hard work...doesn't sound like HER style...BOL!

    Hope you get to go, you'd show those pigs and goats a thing or two.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy
