As the entire Mittelland region sinks into mist and fog, sunshine generally awaits you up here on the Weissenstein. And on a clear day, apart from a glimpse of the Alps, views extend from the Säntis all the way to Mont Blanc. Three-hour hikes through our solar system, (on the planet path) to Grenchenberg, or hikes over the Röti to Balmberg and Jura gardens by Kurhaus 200 to discover 200 species of plant are popular here.

The Kurhaus as well as three mountain restaurants welcome guests on the Weissenstein – all known for their specialities and special events.
