Special ticket “Schächental mountain trail”

4 cable cars - 1 trail

The Schächental mountain trail leads you through the Klausen Pass area, one of Switzerland’s most scenic mountain pass landscapes. Hike across the magnificent landscape, past majestic mountains and a unique flora and fauna. Take one of four cable cars up to the sun terraces of Schächental: Eggberge, Ruogig-Fleschsee, Biel-Kinzig or Ratzi.

The Eggberge cable car (mountain station at 1,445m) is an easily accessible starting point for a day hike. The valley station of the Eggberge cable car is conveniently located close to Flüelen main station and can thus be easily reached by public transport.

After a short while, you reach Fleschsee (or Flesch Lake) – an ideal place for an early lunch break with well-built fireplaces. A little further onwards, you arrive at Ruogig mountain station (1,730m). Of course, you can also continue your hike for another 30 minutes to Biel (1,720m), and from there along the sun terrace towards Klausen Pass. The Ratzi cable car (1,520m) is your last option to descend before you get to Klausen Pass (1,948m). 

The Schächental mountain trail offers suitable routes for all hikers, regardless of their fitness level. At the mountain cable car stations and along the trail, cosy mountain restaurants invite you to take a break and enjoy their large sun terraces.
