The path to Berghaus Aescher starts at the base of  Ebenalp, in the village of Wasserauen. From there, the majestic Ageteplatte peaks southwards.

A cablecar helps the ascent to Ebenalp: up there the view reaches the Austrian alps!

… do not watch down (!) into the valley … and safely reach Berghaus Aescher! Just 1 hour and half by car from Zurich: I could not miss visiting it in these colorful Autumn days.
