Wildenmannlisloch Weg

This tour crosses through Obertoggenburg; from Starkenbach, over the Toggenburger Höhenweg to Alt St Johann. There are impressive hikes to be had beneath the seven peaks of the Churfirsten and past the Wildenmannlisloch.
The Kistenbahn cable car, with room for five people (or 4 adults and 2 kids), takes you from Starkenbach up to Strichboden. For hikers who tend to avoid adventure or those who get dizzy easily, we recommend taking this part of the route on foot. Experienced hikers can brave the ascent up the Selun, the last of the Churfirsten peaks, as an extra section to the hike and will be rewarded with a unique view of the Walensee.

From Strichboden, a walk of about 15 minutes will take you to Wildenmannlisloch. The prehistoric cave is above 150m long and is safe to enter. Back in the daylight, the hike continues over the Breitenalp, Thurtalerstofel and Mittelstofel to Alp Selamatt. The last section of the route covers the Toggenburg legend path and provides an insight into the unique local legends.

From the Sellamatt mountain restaurant, a combined cable car/gondola lift takes you into the valley. For any hiking enthusiasts who still have the enough energy, the ascent can also be taken on foot.
