Did you know that part of the Grand Tour of Switzerland runs through our region? That should tell you all you need to know about its stunning scenery. The Grand Tour encourages travellers to discover our secrets on a route from Gams to Bad Ragaz via Buchs and Liechtenstein. But as every local knows, the Grand Tour is just the beginning.
The locations of our municipalities and the geography of our region actively invite you to immerse yourself in nature. The Pizol and Flumserberg hiking and skiing areas offer fabulous experiences all year round, as do the Walensee and the resort of Bad Ragaz, complete with its Tamina thermal spa. If that’s not enough for you, the Heidiland holiday region will take your back to your childhood, while the Sardona tectonic area (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) gives you a unique insight into how the Alps were formed.
Cuisine and cultur
When it comes to cuisine, we have everything covered, from rustic inns to Gilde restaurants. The Grand Resort Bad Ragaz brings the stars to your plate – and it’s not the only one. Culture is a big part of life here, too. From musicals on the Walenstadt Lake Stage to plays at Werdenberg Castle (which hosts performances overlooking the picturesque village and the Werdenbergersee) right through to Bad RagARTz, the Swiss triennal of sculptures featuring hundreds of open-air artworks – you’re bound to find something to suit your taste.
Traditions and association
We live our customs and traditions, from carnival to the annual cattle drives from the picturesque Alpine pastures. These traditions are complemented by a network of active associations and modern infrastructure, making the region a versatile paradise for anyone who enjoys outdoor and leisure activities. You’ll find people here are open, hospitable but down to earth. Do they sound like your kind of people? We thought they might!
