Who would not enjoy a meal and something to drink when hiking in the Swiss mountains? The Aescher offers all that in a wonderful atmosphere, surrounded by breathtaking views of the Alpstein. In my opinion this is a must see experience while you are in Switzerland and every step up the step mountain slopes is worth while. Just do it... More

After a short easy downhill walk from the gondola station and through some dimly lit caves, you emerge onto a ledge that houses the old hermit's cabin (now a museum) and a tiny bell spire, and a church with altar in a shallow cave.
