Hiking in Alpstein, Switzerland
From Wasserauen I’ve walked along the Schwendibach stream and climb to Seealpsee lake. Its idyllic location, picture perfect clean water beautiful landscapes. At the end of the lake the route heads left up to the captivating little herdsmen's village of Meglisalp. Ive taken the path that leads through the prehistoric Wildkirchli caves – inhabited around 40,000 years ago – and down to the hermitage and the famous Aescher mountain Inn. Prehistoric stone tools were found in this area 100 years ago, proving that hunter-gatherers lived here in the Late Stone Age (45,000 – 30,000 BC). The remains of cave bears were also found.
