They say it's nice to work up an appetite before your dinner but would you be willing to hike three hours up a cliff to eat? That's how long it takes to reach the Äscher cliff restaurant in Switzerland, which sits around 5 km above sea level and is nestled in the side of a mountain in the Alpstein area.

The Ascher cliff restaurant literally clings to the foot of a vertical cliff about 100 meters highVisitors can hike there from Wasserauen station and reports online suggest it's worth the trek, offering spectacular views of this fascinating hiking area. After the first climb, you reach the picturesque Seealp lake, with, behind it, the mighty Säntis mountain. A cable car takes you back down to the valley.

    There aren't even any mountains 5 km high in Switzerland. This hotel/restaurant is instead about 5,000 feet above see level, not 5,000 meters.
