Säntis, seen from Hoher Kasten mountain in Alpstein limestone range, Appenzell Alps, Switzerland.
At 2502 meters elevation, Säntis is the highest mountain in the Alpstein massif of northeastern Switzerland, and highest of the Appenzell Alps, which rise between Lake Walen and Lake Constance. Shared by three cantons, the mountain is a prominent landmark. In good weather, the summit provides a spectacular view across six countries: Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Liechtenstein, France, and Italy. This view is from Hoher Kasten mountain, in Switzerland, Europe. Hoher Kasten (1795 m) is on the border between the cantons of Appenzell Innerrhoden and St. Gallen. Appenzell Innerrhoden is Switzerland's most traditional and smallest-population canton (second smallest by area).Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
