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.
This is the veiw over to Lichtenstein taken from the base station of the cable car.
This is the view out of the gondola as we climbed to the top of the ridge.
Up we go!
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.
This is a veiw of the back side of the ridge looking down as a whisp of a cloud forms below.
