Took the train to Wasserauen, which was a beautiful scenic train ride, then took the cable car up to Ebenalp. From Ebenalp, hiked about 30 minutes downhill through the cave to the Gasthaus Aescher-Wildkirchli. After eating, hiked back up to Ebenalp and rode the cable...More

We decided to hike to Seealpse Lake and then to Berggasthaus Aescher-Wildkirchli. The hike took us about 3 hours and included a lot of switchbacks, but the surroundings were gorgeous and the pay-off views at the lake and at the restaurant tucked into a cliffside...More

We were on a business trip and this was a free afternoon option. After travelling up the chairlift we all walked down the mountain, through the cave, to the restaurant. I think every member of the group was amazed at the view and this was...More

The Ebenalp cable car runs all year round I think as it is a ski location. The Restaurant however is only open from May to November. Hope this helps :)
