Chellenchöpfli

One of the nicest vantage points in the region is the Chellenchöpfli, 1156 metres above sea level – the second-highest point in the canton of Baselland, after the neighbouring ‘Hinteren Egg’, which stands at 1169 metres above sea level.  

The Chellenchöpfli is the second-highest peak in Baselland and offers a wonderful view. Particularly interesting to observe is the ‘sea of fog’, which, in winter, often blankets the central plateau. When hiking in the area, it's always worth making a short detour to this spot. At the vantage point, there are  information panels and graphics.
Chellenchöpfli got its name from the little rocky summit (‘Chöpfli) at Chellenberg, the mountain with the ladle-shaped indentation between Vorderen Egg and the rocky ridge of Chellenchöpfli. From a distance, this long, narrow trough really looks like a ladle.
The Chellenchöpfli is best accessed on foot from the summit station of the Wasserfallen cable car, but there are other possible routes. A short climb will take you to the nature trails.
