Cableway Pfannenstiel–Alpsigel

At the moment the operation of the Sigelbahn runs with one instead of both gondolas. Therefore, waiting times are to be expected.

The stresses of everyday life are forgotten. The new Alpstein cable car takes you 1600 metres above sea level to Alp Sigel with its well-known and unique alpine flora, alpine huts, grazing cows and hiking routes. Use the short trip up the mountain as a start to a pleasant hike – or stay and enjoy the peace and quiet and the marvellous views over the Appenzellerland as far as Lake Constance.

Rest for a moment and enjoy the stunning panorama that stretches far beyond the boundaries of canton and country. Alp Sigel is well known for its diverse flora. Five families farm the alp during the summer months. During this time the Hasenplatten garden restaurant is open – subject to weather conditions.
