Dear DocNet hiking folks,
on Saturday, 20th of July, we have a very special early-bird event planned for you. We will have breakfast 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 6:00 am at the St.Gallen train station (north exit, Visana building). We then drive (with cars) to the Schwägalp, where we start our hike at 6:45 am. After three hours of hiking up, we will reach the Säntis summit and enjoy breakfast together. Afterwards, we use the Schwebebahn back to the Schwägalp and drive back to St.Gallen.
Please note that it is important to bring appropriate boots, outfit, sunscreen, 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 before. The tour is organized by DocNet. If you have any questions, please contact Florian Weigert (firstname.lastname@example.org). 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 price for the breakfast (26.50 CHF) and the ride with the Schwebebahn (19 CHF with Halbtax) yourselves.
For anyone volunteering to drive by car, DocNet will cover the Säntis-Zmorge (breakfast).
We are looking forward to exploring the Alpstein with you!
6:00 - 12:30
