This beautiful walk starts at the mountain station of the Wasserauen-Ebenalp cable car. Explore the Appenzeller region at its most beautiful as you pass colourful meadows of Alpine flowers, impressive rock formations and stunning panoramic views.

First you go slightly uphill to mountain guesthouse Ebenalp (Berggasthaus Ebenalp). A zig-zag path over the Füessler leads you downhill to the famous Aescher guesthouse (Gasthaus Aescher Wildkirchli). Returning uphill to Ebenalp, you will pass through the Wildkirchli caves with a cave chapel and an ancient hermit house. The Wildkirchli area is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Appenzellerland. The mystical ambience of the Wildkirchli caves is particularly apparent when the weather is wet.
