From the mountain station of the Hasliberg Wasserwendi – Käserstatt gondola, it’s an easy walk down to the Mägisalp after a short ascent. The hike takes about an hour and can also be done in the opposite direction.

Author’s recommendation

We recommend a «2-zone day pass» for walkers or sledgers (from Hasliberg Twing or Reuti) or a «2+ zone day pass» from Meiringen.

 

The region also has great possibilities for night skiing (Mägisalp-Reuti), which can be combined with an evening of fondue or raclette (a traditional Swiss dish with melted cheese grilled under direct heat) in the Mägisalp mountain restaurant.
