Among 225 listed Destinations of a lifetime, the Swiss Berghaus Aescher of Ebenalp got the cover of National Geographic. What lies above and below this mountain hotel? Click each picture to magnify.
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!

The path to Berghaus Aescher clings to Ebenalp cliffs …
… 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.
There is a weak outlined path starting west of the ‘906. Walk it down, take your time facing the sun towards the rocky shores. There, washed by the sea, is the place of mind of Nebida.
Here no stones are washed anymore, no windmills pump sea water up to the tank. No railway carries the mineral to Masua. But they are all still there.
Walls and fallen bricks still separate outdoor and indoor, but no other noises than wind fill the factory nowadays.
Between the red arches of bricks. Through the rusty metal wagons left. On the fallen floors.
The geometries of the old factory puzzle the natural panorama into sea blue and rock yellow pieces.
This is the stone-washing factory Lamarmora. This is Nebida, Sulcis, Sardegna.
