Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

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 wonderful views all along the way to the surrounding mountains. Up top, there were spectacular 360-degree views that (we were told) reach into Liechtenstein, Austria, and Germany on a clear day.

Much as we enjoyed the views, we thoroughly enjoyed visiting the alpine garden just below the summit. There, a terrific and very knowledgeable botanist, Lydia, generously guided us around for over an hour and described (in layperson's terms) how different plants find homes in different kinds of soils and micro-climate conditions.

If you want to get transported -- literally and figuratively -- to some great vistas above the Rhine, take the cable car up to Hoher Kasten!

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 old, he found it no problem!

Views at the top are great, restaurant has good food and most importantly cold beer!

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 mountain I am told you can see 6 countries although, not being European myself, I could not identify which ones I was seeing. All the same, this is a great place to get an overview of the mountains and the countryside of this very special part of Switzerland.

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 August), cows with cowbells and beautiful green valleys.

Lots of hikes start from Hoher Kasten but do you your research carefully and if you're not used to walking don't over estimate your ability. The sun was quite intense when we were there and although the paths down aren't difficult we were all aware of our knees as we descended. We took a route down the mountain with the detour in to Forstseeli which was through the woods and round a small lake where there was a hut but no toilets. We continued on to Ruhesitz where there was a guest house and where we picked up Trotti Scooters for the final descent. Great fun whizzing down the hill even for the adults!

Went last Sunday to this mountain, ate in the rotating restaurant and just had a delightful time walking the trails and listening to the cows with their bells. It really is astounding and more beautiful than anything I can imagine. My friend looked at my photos and said he was waiting for Julie Andrews to walk into the singing. HA I know that's an Austria reference but it sure fits with the photos.) I loved this place so very much. Also, the states we always have to pay quarters to look through the telescopes and these are free and include little words in them saying the names of what you are viewing. That was a nice little feature. The gondola you take up the mountain is really fun and not scary at least to me. My friend didn't walk on the trails with me because he said it was too steep but I loved it. Though hiking boots are imperative to save your ankles as it's rocky.

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 was nice for a hot drink too.
