When you think of the great hikes in the Swiss Alps, don't overlook the splendid hiking found in the Alpstein range of eastern Switzerland in the canton of Appenzell, which is the home to eastern Switzerland's highest peak, Santis. Even though the Saxer Lücke is known as a "geological theme hike", there is a wide variety of trail interest, bobbing and weaving views, botanical surprises, wildlife, and other attractions to make this hike one of the greatest and most thoroughly enjoyable in the Alps. If you want to spend the night at Stauberen or Bollenwees, take off on foot for the Hoher Kasten summit. You'll enjoy the panoramic views of the Rhine valley, Austria’S Tirol to the east, the green hills of Appenzell to the northwest, and the Alpstein range to the southwest. The main fun begins as you follow the ridgeline to the south in the marked direction of the Saxer Lücke. One can also enjoy lunch at the Berggasthaus Staubern before continuing on to the Saxer Lücke.

Amazing mountain formation
Spectacular sight-seeing views. Huge and high rise mountains. Astonishing valleys. The best trials I've ever been in there before. Awesome! *****
Just a 20min walk from the Berggasthaus Bollenwees. View is indescribable.
