DocHike Säntis Lunch

DocHike Säntis Lunch

Dear DocNet hiking folks,

on Sunday, 12th of July, we have a very special early-bird event planned for you. We will have lunch at the summit of the Säntis – the highest mountain in the Alpstein with an altitude of over 2,500 metres. To reach the mountain, we will start at the Schwägalp and hike our way up on the direct way. During the hike, we can enjoy breathtaking views over the Swiss mountains.

We will meet at 8:00 am at the St.Gallen train station (track 2). We then travel with public transport to the Schwägalp, where we start our hike at 9:15 am. At the Säntis summit, we will enjoy lunch together. Afterwards, we use the Schwebebahn (cable car) back to the Schwägalp and drive back to St.Gallen.

Please note that it is important to bring appropriate boots and outfit, sunscreen, some energy snacks, and enough drinking water for about 3 hours of hiking.

The event requires good weather conditions and won’t take place in case of bad weather. A final notification (confirmation or cancellation of the event) will be sent to everyone who registered the day before. If you have any questions, please contact Daniel Fauser (

You should be free from giddiness and be able to ascend around 400 meters in altitude per hour. Please be aware of the risks a hiking tour in the mountains can bear. DocNet is only the organizer of the tour and cannot be made responsible for personal safety.

The tickets are free of charge, however you will have to cover the lunch (DocNet pays for one drink) and the ride with the Schwebebahn (19 CHF with Halbtax/GA or CHF 38 without) yourselves.

We are looking forward to exploring the Alpstein with you!

8:00 - 15:30
