The Ebenalp (1,640 m) is the northernmost summit of the Appenzell Alps. The mountain is a popular hiking destination and has been accessible by cable car from Wasserauen since 1955. Ebenalp attracts up to 200,000 visitors each year.
From the high plateau of the cable car station visitors have a panoramic view of the rolling hills of Appenzell. Impressive trails start at the station and lead to a network of mountain huts. These hiking routes lead to popular sites such as Säntis and Seealpsee. The nearby Wildkirchli hut can be reached by hiking through a cave.
