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)

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.
