Winter hikes to St.Anton (AI)

Scenic views over the Alpstein, Lake Constance and Rheintal Valley

Enjoy the picturesque Appenzeller winter landscapes and views over Lake Constance, the Alpstein and as far as the Graubünden Alps.

But don’t just stand there in awe – get moving! We warmly recommend an easy snowshoe tour from Kaien by Rehetobel via Langenegg, Rütegg-Bensel as far as St.Anton at 1100 meters above sea level.

Please Note

  • The special «Rondommweg» hiking path at St.Anton is marked (approx. 1 hour)
  • Depending on snow level, this route offers a hiking or snowshoeing experience
