Säntis – a much welcomed sight

Just like a unpenetrable fortress the Alpsteinmassiv juts out high above the undulating hills of the Appenzell: its highest point is 2502-meter-high Mount Säntis. The ride in the gondola is breath-taking: take in Lake Constance, the Vorarlberg, the Graubünden, Glarus and Bernese Alps. On a clear day one can even see the Vosges Mountains and the Black Forest.

Meteorologists knew why they established a weather station on this mountain already in 1882. The Säntis is seen from near and far…. just like the panoramic views as seen from the summit.
