children love the cave and the little church. It is something unique in the area and it is special and historic. Take the effort and try to see, it is great if the weather is good. Very busy on sunny weekends, but worth going there.

Amazing views on the side of the hill. Really an experience, with views to Germany and Austria. Well worth a walk, although if you're afraid of heights, maybe not totally your cup of tea

The food was so good. View was gorgeous but the restaurant was very crowded. The three of us shared a table outside and was squished between two other groups. Still worth the hassle and would do it again!

Great walk down from the cable car station to the impressive caves. When you come out there are some narrow walk ways along the cliff, an outdoor church with a tiny 'church' = Wildkirchli.
