Winter adventure Säntis

Warmly recommended: winter at Schwägalp and Säntis mountain

In winter, Säntis and Schwägalp are transformed into an entirely different landscape, a glistening fairy-tale world. Now is the time for fantastic winter walks, snowshoe hikes and sleigh rides.

Experience the fairytale Laternliweg (Lantern Trail), which is illuminated by lanterns every evening from Thursday to Saturday. The tour can be perfectly combined with a cosy cheese fondue or a raclette experience at the new “Säntis – the Hotel” or the Gasthaus-Passhöhe. Säntis and Schwägalp attract visitors thanks to the experiences they offer beyond the everyday, as well as their culinary highlights.
