Fantastic Cross Mountains

Tour description

The cable car, which opened in 2018, takes us from Frümsen up to the Stauberenkanzel, which alone would be worth a trip. Our extraordinary Alpstein tour takes us over the Saxer Lücke to the majestic Kreuzbergen mountains. If nature had not created these fantastic limestone peaks, an architect would have had to invent them first. The hiking guide will then show you a little walked path, a steep and exciting path to the high plateau of Roslenfirst, where you have to use your hands in a certain passage. The reward is exclusive: in addition to an entry in the summit book, we enjoy an impressive panoramic view of the Kreuberge mountains on one side and Altmann, Säntis & Co. on the other. Continuing on the ridge we descend pathless over the grass ridge to the Mutschensattel. Only a few metres in altitude separate us from the summit of the same name, the Mutschen - a despiser of tastes, who leaves out this impressive view over the entire Rhine Valley to the Vorarlberg. Then we continue downhill through the wonderful, lonely mountain landscape until we finally pass Teselalp, where the chilled beer is already ready in the fountain. Through a beautiful ravine we reach our end point after an eventful day - Wildhaus in Toggenburg! By the way: If you want to save your legs the last 300 meters of altitude, you can take the last stage by chair lift from Camplüt.
