Start of construction of the Säntis cable car

Already in 1908, Dr Carl Meyer from Herisau conducted private studies for a cable car. The concession for a cable car from Schwägalp to Säntis was granted in 1933. The first cable connection from Säntis down to Schwägalp was installed by the local Niklaus Zwingli from Ennetbühl in the Toggenburg.
