Wow when I learned that this place really exists (as the pictures just did not look real!) it became the number one destination to take my parents to, as they just love the landscapes and panoramas of the mountains. But this was a place that has exceeded our expectations. It is just so amazingly beautiful it does not seem real!... More

We had mixed feelings on this B&B but it is such a special place you need to try it for yourself. After catching the cable car it's about a km hike to the B&B but with the view on the hike makes it a wonderful walk. On arrival it took forever to be shown to our room which ended up... More

This place is incredible, but I didn't do my research and it turned out to be quite a difficult hike with suitcases for my mom and me. We stayed for two nights, but the hostel doesn't have any showers, and other than exploring and hiking, there's nowhere else to go once up there on the mountain. In the future, I... More

My husband and I stopped here on our eurotrip for 1 night. It is something we will never forget. We took the tram up mid day and we were able to leave our bags at the Inn while we explored the mountain. The views on the mountaintop were unbelievable. It is something we never thought we would do and are... More

I learned about this guesthouse from an article I read on the places you need to stay before you die. So when my friends and I planned our backpacking trip to Switzerland, I knew I had to squeeze this place into our plans. We were SO glad we did! This was our favorite experience of the trip! We took the... More

Our family of 5 and some friends, also a family of 5, hiked up to this hut in mid July and stayed the night. The views are stunning and the food was very good. All 10 of us were able to stay together in the outside attached room, which was perfect with 6 kids in tow. It is expensive here... More

The Berggasthaus Aescher is an absolutely unforgettable experience. From Zurich, you take two trains and a cable car, then begin your hike along the edge of the mountain. You then arrive at the Berggasthaus Aescher that's cut into the side of the cliff. You sit down at a table and eat a delicious Swiss meal of Rosti and sample a... More

Its so an unexpected location for this attraction that it gives the wow factor in my opinion. There are two ways to reach this place, depending on how fit you are. I honestly wanted to do a hike first since the day was lovely, so I went out of the cable care and took the path on the right hand... More

The hostel is situated literally, beside a mountain. The hike going to the "gasthaus" is spectacular! It is seriously beyond words. The lunch was amazing as well. We had beef goulash and ordered extra cheese rousti. I highly recommend this place to everybody! The lunch menu price is quite steep, but you have to understand that it is hard to... More

We took the Ebenalp cable car up the mountain. First we went to the peak to see to amazing view and then followed the signs for Aescher. We had been told it was a steep descent but it really wasn't too bad and certainly worth it! All along the walk is beautiful and then you see the Berggasthaus nestled in... More
