From Oberrickenbach we take the two historic small cable cars via Ober Spies to Sinsgäu. Luckily such cable cars are preserved, a real, safe experience to ride up to 1600 meters with the open cable car. After a hike to Bannalp we have stunning views of the deeply blue Lake Bannalpsee.

Destination

Oberrickenbach

Turn-by-turn directions

After an adventurous ride with the two cable cars, we head for the Alp Haghütte. Here, alp cheese is produced in summer and a snacks are served on the small terrace. Through the "Bründli" forest we then climb up to the "Chrüzhütte" - also an alpine farm. Children then love the "Zwärgliweg" (gnome trail), where the secret of the sparkling stone is revealed. From Bannalpsee or Chrüzhütte, a cable car takes you back to Oberrickenbach. The cable cars are not included in the time calculation.
