Tips

  • Christian K. & Miriam

    The Rotstein Pass lies between the two highest peaks of the Alpstein Mountains. On one side the "Altmann" and on the other side the Säntis. A mountain hiking trail leads from Meglisalp directly to the Rotstein Pass. As on all mountain hiking trails, it is "an advantage" to be sure-footed. You don't have to be free from giddiness.
    A hunter who is responsible for the Rotsteinpass - Zwinglipass area explained to me that there are currently (year 2019) 18 ibex on the Altmann. The best way to see them is to walk a little down the valley towards "Thurwis".

    The crossing from the Zwinglihütte to the Säntis is worthwhile with fascinating high alpine impressions - provided you are sure-footed and not afraid of heights. I would secure children.

    It takes a while to reach him. But the sight when the day wakes up, tickle the sun's rays at the mountain peaks & show the beauty of nature ... is priceless!

    Berggasthaus Rotsteinpass is a cozy place to stop for refreshments and a good opportunity to fortify yourself before / after the Lisengrat.

    With a bit of luck, you can see ibexes directly below the Rotstein Pass. There is a small herd that prefers to stay in this area during the summer months

    From here it goes over the Lisengrat to Säntis - a great challenge for sure-footed, vertigo-free hikers with suitable hiking shoes
