Switzerland - Säntis

Switzerland - Säntis
The Sántis is with a height of 2.502 metres the highest peak in the Alpstein massif in northeastern Switzerland. It is a natural landmark in the region between Lake Walen and Lake Constance. The mountain towers above one of the most beautiful landscapes of Europe and can be seen from miles away. .

The name Säntis dates back to the 9th century. It is an abbreviation of the Romansh language for Sambatinus (The one born on Saturday), which was thought to be the name of a nearby area. The name was later used to refer to the summit. In the German language it was originally called Semptis or Sämptis.

We were quite lucky with the weather during our visit. We took the aerial cable car at 9.30 am from Schwägalp, right at the foot of the Säntis At the peak we had a breathtaking clear 360-degree view, although it was freezing cold. It is said that one can see six Alpine countries: Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Liechtenstein, Italy and France. To be honest I can not tell if I saw all these countries. When back - just more than an hour later - the peak was already surrounded by clouds !!

Main picture: Swiss Alps with the Churfirsten in the ‘foreground’.
PiP 1: panorama (three pictures stitched together) looking north (Germany and Lake Constance) and northeast (Austria).
PiP 2 and 3: freezing and ‘hoarfrosting’ cold.

A wonderful view and photo, and notes. The strange thing for me is being on the ground in one country and seeing another and more amazing multiple others. There is no place in mainland Australia where you can see another country. There are islands north of Cape York in the Torres Straits (all are Australian territory, part of Queensland state) where Papua New Guinea can be seen.
