Sitting in the mountain inn "Alter Säntis" and looking over to Mt. Altmann one wonders how there could possibly be a way that connects these two mountains. And indeed, it is not something vertigo-afflicted people should attempt. The trail requires free hands because in many spots it has been reinforced with steel cables and staircases hewn directly into the rocky cliffs.
To see Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Liechtenstein, France and Italy all at the same time - this can be accomplished from the 2,502-meter-high Säntis. The highest mountain of the Alpstein region is the starting point and destination for mountain tours, hikes and ski trips.
