Located in a seemingly precarious position, Berggasthaus is dominated by a vertical rock face rather high which can only be reached by taking a cable car and then making a long walk on the steps carved in the steep meadows that surround the area.
To contextualize the hotel, we read on MySwitzerland.com that:
“in any other part of Switzerland, the transition from a hilly landscape of the Mediterranean alpine world dominated by rocks is so short and so impressive as in the Alpstein region. As if from nowhere emerge mighty rock formations rising up to 2500 m. The area is criss-crossed by deep and steep valleys. “
The Alpine Inn Ascher is ready to entertain you but you must book in advance by phone prudently to avoid the risk of having to spend the night in a cave nearby. It is not clear what the charges are, but watching a sunset in the absolute silence of the valleys is definitely worth a small investment.
