Hiking Seealp

  • Aug 24, 2013 · 8:15 AM

Please find below a suggested hike by Patricia.

I would like to propose a hike for Saturday 24th of August to the East part of Switzerland, the Ebenalp. This hike goes along the rockformations and valleys to the Seealp lake with the Säntis on the background. On top of the mountain is a very special Bergrestaurant with view over the alps and a cablecart that brings us down again.

The hike has an ascention rate of 800 meters and is medium level. Duration of the hike about 4 hours. 

Start is at Bahnhof Wasserauen at 10.50. Destination is Cablecar station Ebenalp at about 16:00

Take care to bring good hiking shoes, raincoat, sunprotection, water and food (we reach the restaurant later in the afternoon). Joining is at your own risk.

Public transport:


Meeting under the blue Angel at ZRH HB 8:30

Train Zürich HB to Gossau leave at 8:39 Platform (Gleis) 9 (IC711)

Gossau arrival 9:43

Change in Gossau to the train that leaves at 9:47 direction Wasserauen (R1097)

Wasserauen arrival 10:41

We will take the train back around[masked] and arrive around[masked] in Zürich HB.


In case people would like to come by car, just let me know.

My mobile ONLY in case of emergencies:[masked]

Cheers, Patricia

    Hey there, me and my guest will meet you up there at the train station..

    Can I assume that we'll go back to the same point (Wasserauen) and buy a return SBB ticket? It's a bit cheaper than the daily pass.
