Fodor's Review

The northernmost peak of the Appenzeller Alps, the 1,640-meter (5,380-foot) Ebenalp is accessible via cable car from Wasserrauen, 7 km (4 mi) south of Appenzell. At the top is an easy hike that connects to others trails that lead to a mountain lake or loop back to the cable car. Also here is the Wildkirchli, a cave that was home to humans in the Paleolithic era and today houses a large bear skeleton that dates back 90,000 years. Five minutes farther along the trail is the Berggastaus Aescher-Wildkirchli, a mountainside hotel and restaurant with eye-popping views of the valley below.
