Warning! Restaurant and cable car closed until May 2021 due to construction activities.
Warning operations closed!

The cable car and revolving restaurant will be closed from now on until May 2021 due to construction work. The trailsection Kastensattel - Hoher Kasten will be closed from Nov 4 2020 until spring 2021. Due to rock excavation and blasting work, there is a very high risk of rockfall on this section.
We thank all our guests for their loyalty in 2020 and look forward to being there for you again from May 2021.



Enjoy unforgettable moments on the panoramic Hoher Kasten mountain in Eastern Switzerland. When it comes to food and drink, you will experience moments of the purest enjoyment.


In eight minutes, the Hoher Kasten Cableway carries you past rolling hills and idyllic Appenzell farmhouses up to 1,794 metres above sea level.


There are many varied activities to enjoy on Hoher Kasten: whether you’re a hiker, a paraglider, or a foodie … There’s something for everyone here!


You can spend the night in Appenzell, but there are also lots of other choices. Enhance your Alpstein experience and spend the night in Brülisau or in an Alpstein mountain inn.
