Round Trip on Ebenalp with a view

Hiking tip to the Berggasthaus Ebenalp (mountain inn).

Take the cable car to Ebenalp and start your hike up on top. Make your way to Alp Chlus through mountain pines and alpine rose bushes. Descend along the mountain wall, where you might come across a climber or two. After an hour or so of hiking the route will ascend toward the plateau of Ebenalp. If you take a last glance back, you will see Meglisalp just above the Seealpsee Lake. Once back on top, reward yourself with a cup of coffee or a bite to eat in the mountain inn and enjoy the view of the trim alpine garden. Usually, you can watch countless paragliders taking off. Whether you want to paraglide back down to Wasserauen or take the cable car is solely up to you.
