  • After a good meal around the Summit hike on the newly created path. Super views, beautiful alpine flora. A real alternative to a trip on the Säntis, as less and less people. Also from the top down, a nice experience hiking to Brülisau

  • Super mountain with great views in all four directions. Luftseilbanh with super comfortable cabin leader. Revolving restaurant with good food, the only downside: poorly and unfriendly service personnel.
