Armin Thöni

Vice President of the Zauberwald Foundation Board

A Bernese with roots in Ernen.

As a child, I would sneak away from tending the cattle to the nearby Zauberwald, which wasn't called that yet, but already had a magical allure for me. Years later, my children played in the Zauberwald, which still didn't have that name. Nearly 20 years ago, the Zauberwald Foundation was established, and the forest was developed in a nature-friendly way and became known throughout Switzerland. I am excited to join this dedicated team and hope to contribute to the preservation and further development of this magical place.
