We went up on 26. Dec. at very nice weather, not a lot of snow . We had a very good view around the Peak. At the end we ate some Food in the normal Restaurant, not the turning section.

We needed a break from day hiking and decided to take the cable car ride up to Hoher Kasten. Even on a hazy day, it was a very enjoyable treat. The ride up to the summit passed over some small dairy farms and pastures, with...More

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

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.

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

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.
