Details

Description

Starting from Walenstadt station, you drive through the Städtli and then on the very spacious cycle path via Tscherlach to Berschis. In the village center the path forks and you follow the signpost to Kurhaus Sennis. From here the steady ascent begins on a solid, small mountain road. After only a few hundred meters, you can catch a glimpse of st. George's Chapel, a true art monument, on the right.

After 14 curves you have left the steepest part of the way behind. There are still about 100 meters of altitude difference missing, these meander in a very pleasant slope along the rocks towards the day's destination.

On the mountain inn Sennis Alp you will find refreshments and refreshments as well as peace, relaxation and new energy. Keep an eye out for golden eagles, ibex, and chamois.

The way back is via the same path downhill in the direction of Walenstadt and the deep blue Walensee.

Geheimtipp

Take part in the E-Bike Beizen-Trophy: Collect stamps at 6 mountain stains and receive a culinary greeting at the end of the season and, with a little luck, win gourmet prizes.

Sicherheitshinweis

Ausrüstung

Normal bike equipment. Functional clothing is an advantage, as a longer ascent is followed by an equally long descent. Light for the bike is recommended because of the tunnel.
