Sunrise on the Chäserrugg

Experience the awakening of nature on the Chäserrugg and the impressive combination of peace, light and a breathtaking view at sunrise at 2,262 m above sea level.

Be at the summit before sunrise and experience how the first rays of sunlight bathe the 500 mountain peaks in a golden light. You can admire this natural spectacle around the summit building, on the Rosenboden plateau or on Hinterrugg. With a bit of luck you will see the ibex colony, which spends the night in the area and likes to enjoy the morning sun on the plateau or on the Hinterrugg.

In the Chäserrugg summit restaurant, a breakfast buffet will fortify you for the day in the area. It offers you a large selection of locally produced cheese, regional meat, fresh breads and other specialities from Toggenburg. Also during breakfast you have a unique view of the surrounding mountains thanks to the large windows of the summit building.

Tickets for the sunrise ride can only be booked online in the shop. You can choose a breakfast time (06.00-08.00/08.00-10.00). The train ticket is valid throughout the day. If you have a Chäserrugg Annual or Summer Card, you can delete the rail journey from the shopping basket and pass through the passage barriers with the card. As a holder of a Junior Card or FVP, the train journey can also be deleted from the shopping basket, but a ticket must be purchased at the ticket office on the day of the excursion.
