Plattenbödeli Round Trip

A wonderful tour for hikers through a tranquil landscape with a steep ascent, gentle middle part and a optional fun finish.

From the church in Brülisau, the trail leads through the flat area «Pfannenstiel». Continue up the steep trail through the shaded forest up to the Berggasthaus Plattenbödeli (mountain inn). About halfway up you will pass the so-called «Häxewäldli», a forest with dwarf firs. After having a bite to eat at the mountain inn the trail continues through a forest to the Alp Soll. Soon after you will reach the Berggasthaus Ruhesitz (mountain inn). From there you will walk down to Brülisau accompanied by the spectacular panoramic views of the Alpstein massif.
