We thank all our guests for their loyalty in 2020 and look forward to being there for you again from May 2021.

Europa Rundweg Circular Trail

Europa Rundweg Circular Trail

Vistas everywhere you look

Experience unforgettable moments on the Hoher Kasten panoramic mountain in Eastern Switzerland – TOP OF APPENZELL.

The Hoher Kasten Cableway takes you comfortably from Brülisau up to 1,794 m above sea level in under 8 minutes. Various hiking trails also lead to the summit. Once at the top, enjoy the 360° panorama on the northeasterly summit of the Western Alps.

The Europa Rundweg Circular Trail circles the striking silhouette of Hoher Kasten and offers exceptional views in all directions. It is wheelchair-accessible and therefore also accessible for families with prams and people with mobility issues. In the summer months you can marvel at Alpine plants in the Alpine Garden, which was created along the Europa Rundweg Circular Trail. In winter the path is cleared of snow daily. After heavy snowfall, however, there is only limited access by foot or by vehicle.

Path with seating, viewing terraces, rock tour, panorama boards, free telescopes with integrated labels of the peaks and settlements.

Endless view across six countries

All of Europe is at your feet along the new circular trail:

  • Germany: Baden-Wuerttemberg, directly over Lake Constance, Bavaria, to the highest mountains in the Allgäu
  • Austria: from the Vorarlberg Rhine Valley to the peaks of Tyrol
  • Principality of Liechtenstein
  • Swiss Alps: GR, GL, SG, AR, AI to SO, Swiss plateau (Mittelland) to the Jura and Alsace
  • Italy: Monte di Zocca
  • France: Grand Ballon (Great Belchen)
