  • Wonderful hiking trail through the Höhlenpark to the Baumgarten summit station

    Coming from the center of Bezau, in the direction of the cable car Bezau, turn left after the Hotel Sonne. Here is the beginning of the Höhlenpark, which consists of huge rockfall caves and is laid out as a nature trail. In the cave park, a small path branches off to the right towards the special roof. Over the Sattelalpe you reach on the paved forest way toward summit station Baumgarten.
