We hiked from Brüllisau to Rotstienpass and spent a night there. We woke up and found that it was very foggy. Anyway, we continued our hike to Santis via Lisengrat. My husband and I aren't highly experienced hikers. The path was so thrilled with cliff...More

Recently, I've been up mount Säntis when our in-laws came to visit us in Switzerland. We had a great day, enjoying the stunning views of the surrounding countryside.

Santis is one of the highest peaks in North eastern Switzerland, and the view in fair weather is nothing less than stunning. Do not be put off by the CHF 45 fare to take the gondola up to the peak--you will be more than rewarded,...More
