Rhine Valley of St. Gall

One of Switzerland’s beautiful but somewhat forgotten hiking and cycling regions is the Rhine Valley of St. Gallen (St. Galler Rheintal). Situated at an altitude of approximately 700 metres, this region in eastern Switzerland has a fairytale setting between Lake Constance (Bodensee), the Sarganserland and the Old Rhine (Altenrhein).

Numerous historical sites, museums and other cultural institutions accompany the region’s hikers, cyclists and other visitors.

With its unique geography, towns and villages, monasteries, castles and manor houses, rich history, beautiful nature, a wide range of cultural activities and vineyards, the Rhine Valley of St. Gallen is a destination for nature, art and culture lovers. The Rhine Valley is also ideal for cycling and hiking tours.
