    On the Alvier you have a wonderful view to the west of Lake Walen, to the north into the Rhine Valley to Lake Constance and to the southeast into the Rhine Valley upwards towards Prättigau - in between to the mountains of the cantons of Appenzell, St. Gallen, Glarus and Graubünden as well as the peaks of Liechtenstein and Vorarlberg. Simply wonderful 😍😍😍. And the broad back of the Alvier and the Alvier hut invite you to linger and enjoy.For example, descent to the Alvier:
    - Through the south flank of Palfris via Chemmi. (T3 with rope safety devices)
    - Over the northwest slope from Buchser-Malbun via Alp Malschüel. (T3)
    - Coming from Malschüel, the Schaner-Alp or the Alp-Arin via the northeast ridge via the Barbiel ridge. (T2)

    The Alvier (2343 m above sea level) is the eponymous summit of the Alvier group in the canton of St. Gallen in Switzerland, which ends at the somewhat lower Gauschla (2310 m).The Alviergruppe (also: Alvierkette) is a mountain range in the Swiss canton of St. Gallen. The highest point is the Gamsberg with 2385 m. The chain extends between the Rhine Valley and the Seeztal southeast of the Churfirsten from the Nideri to Sargans. Together with the Churfirsten and the Alpstein, the Alvier Group forms the Appenzeller Alps.

    A great mountain that can be reached via easy paths. I did the mountain as a bad weather program and everything was possible without any major problems. The opening times of the hut, which is right next to it, are unfortunately not entirely understandable, so we had to cater for ourselves.
