Not the best idea in 30C plus temperatures, parked at the bottom in Brulisau and took a steady walk up the mountain. The surface is uneven but with good shoes it’s not difficult, gradients aren’t too bad either. We went up with our 7 yr...More

Take the cable car up Hoher Karsten for spectacular views. The cable car ride itself was wonderful - as you go higher you can see over the whole valley with the cows peacefully grazing and hardly a person in sight. From the top of the...More

This was a wonderful trip with unexpected snow experience. Kids enjoyed the snow to themselves. Not only that, the restaurant is a revolving restaurant with great food. If given a second chance, will revisit this place again.

The cable car ride is steep but there are great views on the way up and of course once you get there. It was quite windy but there are panoramic views of the stunning Swiss landscape - lakes, mountains (some still with snow on in...More

Fantastic views of Switzerland, Austrian alps and lake Constance. The cable car leading to Hoher Kasten is also very beautiful going up the cliff of the mountain.

Great cable car ride, up through the clouds. Stunning views at the top, changing constantly with the clouds & we had snow up there too. The pathways had been cleared so that visitors could walk around and get views across all directions. The revolving restaurant...More

I joined the tour and went there in mid-october, it's a cloudy day, so on top of mountain is windy and not much too see, but I am sure it should be wonderful during the summer time. You may consider to have lunch at the...More

This is one of the more remote, lesser known mountain locations in Switzerland, resulting in a much less crowded environment and more reasonable prices. The visitors that come here are predominantly local Swiss or from the adjacent countries: Austria, Germany and Liechtenstein. You can take...More

Hi I've just been at Hoher Kasten... I'm quite sure (although not 100%) that its not possible to hike down from there... We took gondola up and down....looked like the cliffs around it are pretty steep.
