You can do a 13km round trip around the mountain, taking in the summit and Kandel Rocks which is a great way to spend 4 hours. The first half is fairly steep, so be prepared to sweat (I was in a t-shirt with a temperature...More

Did walk from Glotterthal up to Kandel and back. It was some trip, but the experience is more than worth, showing great variety of landscape, vegetation and views. Kandel is the summit by all means :)

Waldkirch was rather grey and dreary, but with every meter you climbed, the air became clearer and the sky brightened up. We walked right up to the top in thick snow. Every photograph I took is brilliantly bright and perfectly framed.

We drove up to Kandel from St. Peter. Half the adventure was the drive! We didn't get to see any paragliders, but it is a base for them. The views from here were definitely worth the drive up. There are 360 degree views. There were...More
