Oberrickenbach – Sinsgäu – Haghütte – Chrüzhütte  – Bannalpsee – Oberrickenbach
From Oberrickenbach we take the two historic small cable cars via Ober Spies to Sinsgäu. Luckily such cable cars are preserved, a real, safe experience to ride up to 1600 meters with the open cable car. After a hike to Bannalp we have stunning views of the deeply blue Lake Bannalpsee.

Directions
After an adventurous ride with the two cable cars, we head for the Alp Haghütte. Here, alp cheese is produced in summer and a snacks are served on the small terrace. Through the "Bründli" forest we then climb up to the "Chrüzhütte" - also an alpine farm. Children then love the "Zwärgliweg" (gnome trail), where the secret of the sparkling stone is revealed. From Bannalpsee or Chrüzhütte, a cable car takes you back to Oberrickenbach. The cable cars are not included in the time calculation.
