Join the Uppsala University Switzerland Alumni Network for a hike on 5 September.

Toggenburg, Alpstein – perhaps the most picturesque part of Switzerland offering unparalleled panoramas! Views overlooking the Rhinevalley and Säntis are promised. The hike will start at Staubern which we will reach by cable car, hiking past Mutschen and ending in Wildahus.

This is a medium hike with difficulty level T3 (red white trail) which will take some 5 hours. This is not a particularly sportive event; regular fitness having done some hiking before is thus enough pre-requisites for enjoying this pleasant hike.
