Fantastic views all around from vantage points on the Hoher Kasten in Appenzell. The revolving restaurant bids views over 6 countries, the Rhine Valley, Alpstein, Appenzell country as far as Lake Constance and Vorarlberg.
The new and wheelchair accessible Europa-Rundweg circular trail leads directly past the revolving restaurant opened just a few years ago. At an altitude of exactly 1784 m, views from this restaurant extend over an amazing six surrounding countries. And viewpoints with binoculars, benches to take a break, an impressive path of rock and informative panorama boards invite you to linger and gaze.
During warmer times of year a stroll through the alpine garden is well worth the time. Here you’re greeted with a fascinating world of flowers and around 300 species of alpine plants that can’t wait to revel their beauty!
