The Athletic

A sporty trail with a view of the Walensee

Alp Sellamatt is accessible by chairlift or cable car from Alt St. Johann in less than 10 minutes. Over the Alp, take the direct forest trail Oberruestel and follow this trail over the saddle all the way to Hinterrugg. If you need to take a breather, then the shepherd-hut is a good place for a break. After a vigorous ascent to the summit you reach the highest of the seven peaks of Churfirsten mountain range, where you can enjoy the breathtaking view of Chammere and Gluristal. Over the connecting ridge, you effortlessly arrive at Chäserrugg.
