Santis peak is only 2.500m above sea level and is not quite well known in Swiss. However we found it is very pleasant to see the panoramic view while you have a breakfast at the Panoramic restaurant up here. As a guest of the hotel...More
Easy to get to from St. Gallen riding train & bus. Take Train #81 from St. Gallen to end of line at Nessiau-Neu St. Johann, Then take 10 minute ride on Bus #792 (should be waiting at train station every 22 min) to Schwagalp Santis...More
Fantastic but strenious hike in the Alpstein region. Changing spectacular views of Säntis & Altmann peak, down to Seealpsee or north to the Bodensee. Crucial parts of the trail are secured by steel cable which you definitivelly will need even if you are not afraid...More
We arrived with the cable car, and spent almost 2 hours on top of the Santis. You need a clear day with no or only few clouds to experience the complete view. The feeling is like flying in the wind at 2500 meters above sea...More

Weather in mountains can change quite a bit from day to day - I'm not sure about what the visibility will be like in the average September - maybe plan a nice daytrip to the nearby areas (St. Gallen and its abbey district with the Stiftsbibliothek (world cultural heritage site)) with Säntis being a second option on the day - and then decide with the weather on the day which way you'll go.
We were really lucky the day we went - but I've also been on a trip to Jungfraujoch (Berner Oberland) on a nice day in Kanton Bern only to figure out that Jungfraujoch itself was pretty much engulfed in a cloud - so visibility zero, when we arrived... :-(
