Despite it not being a very high vantage point, these hikers know that they will have a view onto the Vosges, the Black Forest, the Säntis, the Glarus and Central Switzerland Alps, and all the way to the Bernese Oberland. But they not only enjoy the phenomenal vistas, they also come her to enjoy the gigantic meringues served with freshly whipped cream. Others come to observe the dusks and dawns which dip the scenery in intense colors. What a treat.
