Fantastic hiking routes start on Aeugsten, which include mountain experiences and insights into the Sardona World Heritage Site . The abundance of rocks ensures a great variety of flowers in the Aeugsten area.

The route leads from the Bärenboden to the Schafleger – Fessis Lakes in the Achseli and back to Aeugsten, where you can indulge in regional specialties at the Aeugstenhütte.
