Wasserauen - Ebenalp Cable Car

Appenzell is a year-round outdoor delight, and by far our favorite place to hike in Switzerland; perhaps all of Europe.

Your destination on a map is just past the village of Appenzell (marked in
RED on the map) to the cable car stop at Wasserauen (marked in BLUE on the map).  There is a large parking lot at the bottom where you can leave your stuff.  Keep in mind that on those beautiful summer days, this parking area will be packed with cars, so arrive mid to early morning to avoid the rush.

Even if it is packed at the bottom, do not worry.  There is plenty of space up the valley and you will not at all feel like you are in a crowd.

The Wasserauen - Ebenalp cable car runs approximately every 10 to 15 minutes on the following schedule:

Jan 1 - Apr 30: 7:30am - 5:00pm
May 1 - May 31: 7:30am - 5:30pm
Jun 1 - Jun 30: 7:30am - 6:00pm
Jul 1 - Aug 31: 7:30am - 9:00pm
Sep 1 - Sep 30: 7:30am - 6:00pm
Oct 1 - Nov 1: 7:30am - 5:30pm
Nov 1 - Dec 31: 7:30am - 5:00pm
