Fit and active through the St. Gallen-Lake Constance adventure region

In eastern Switzerland, the St. Gallen-Lake Constance region awaits you with variety and sights to suit every taste. The cultural metropolis of St. Gallen enchants with its picturesque old town, rich in historical heritage. The Cathedral District with its Baroque cathedral and the world-famous library is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a symbol of the city.

The region is still characterised by its rich textile industry. Haute couture, fabrics and lace from St. Gallen are presented on catwalks around the world.

A lively cultural life and unspoiled nature for hiking, cycling and round trips through the St. Gallen, the Rhine Valley, or the Appenzellerland make this beautiful area so attractive.

Explore the beauty of nature on two wheels

Many areas along the Lake Constance cycle path can be easily explored by e-bike, bike or mountain bike. The most convenient routes are along the shores of Lake Constance. Those who prefer to cycle over hill and dale should take the tour to the Appenzellerland. There, picturesque views of the imposing Alpstein massif compensate for the exertion. The e-bike takes you comfortably through the Rhine delta in Rheineck. It is an internationally significant nature reserve and a destination for nature lovers. It is also an important breeding and nesting area for birds – over 330 species of birds have been observed here. The flora and fauna impress with a multitude of rare species.
