BERGGASTHAUS STAUBERN

At the invitation of my hosts, we had dinner at the BERGGASTHAUS STAUBERN. Staubern is 1751 meters/5744 ft above sea level on the eastern ridge of the Aplstein. I has a spectacular view of the Rhine valley as it flows between Lichtenstein and Switzerland.

The most expeditious way to get to the inn is to take the cable car.

At the top! From here, you can see Switzerlan, Austria, Lichtenstein and Germany!

The day is starting to wind down as the sun sinks in the west.

Did I mention that it was steep? This is the view up towards Austria.

Hi Roy,

They are there to hold snow in place to prevent avalanches.
