Hulftegg

The Hulfteggpass (953m) links Toggenburg with the oberen Tösstal between Mühlrüti/Mosnang (SG) and Steg/Fischenthal (ZH). The restaurant is a popular excursion destination and the starting point for the lighthearted joke trail and hike to the Schnebelhorn.
Hulftegg, lying completely in the canton of St. Gallen, has a panorama restaurant with views of Toggenburg, the rolling landscape of Appenzellerland and as far as the Bodensee. The restaurant is popular with bikers and motorcyclists as well as with bus passengers. It is also the starting point for the approx. 20-minute Witz-Rundweg (Joke Path) with 44 jokes, and sculptures of various forest animals for children.

A road has led over the Hulfteggpass since 1866, but the pass had already long been travelled by pilgrims on the Route of St James. Today the pass is the starting point for many hikes, e.g. up to the Hörnli or Schnebelhorn. At 1292m, the Schnebelhorn on the Zurich/St. Gallen cantonal border is the highest mountain in Canton Zurich. Panoramic views extend over the Zürcher Oberland, Zürichsee and Greifensee to the west and Toggenburg to the east. The Schnebelhorn can be reached from several directions, with the most frequently used route beginning on Hulftegg.

The inner man is well catered for on this hike, with no fewer than seven mountain taverns in the area; rucksacks can be left happily at home.

Mountain bikers will find a wide choice of routes around Hulftegg; the trip to the nearby pilgrimage church of St. Iddaburg is very popular.
