Turn-by-turn directions

After the ascent with the cable car to the mountain station (976m) you can enjoy the magnificent panoramic view of the Rhine Valley and the Swiss mountains. From the mountain station you hike to Kühberg, where the trail leads through a beautiful alpine meadow landscape and offers beautiful views. Then a hiking trail branches off in the direction of Staufenalpe. On this path you hike slightly uphill in the forest until you reach a turnoff (1070m). The path then descends approx. 170 m in altitude and through wooded areas another 100 m in altitude on a freight path back up to the Karren mountain station.
