Altstätten is located in the St. Gallen Rhine Valley at the foot of the Appenzell hills and has a rich tradition as a market town. It is well worth a visit. The village centre is well preserved, with its gorgeous painted houses, picturesque market street and beautiful churches.
The colourful town of Appenzell, steeped in the region's farming customs and religious traditions, is a bit like a fairy-tale village and is one of the highlights of any visit to eastern Switzerland. Needless to say, the tourist crowds are there!
Arbon, on the Thurgau shore of Lake Constance (Bodensee), is one of the most beautiful towns in the region, with a magnificent lakefront and many architectural surprises. It's a bit of a paradox, with its mix of seaside resort, industrial town and ancient city. But the charm is always there!
Bad Ragaz
Every three years Bad Ragaz is transformed into a work of art. The Sculpture Triennial takes over the entire city, from the Kurpark in front of the big hotels to the city centre. The panoramas we have shot here in July 2021 show you only a small part of this extraordinary open-air exhibition.
Balzers (FL)
This proud 13th-century castle was actually rebuilt stone by stone in the early 20th century by Egon Rheinberger, a Liechtenstein painter, sculptor and architect. It stands on a hill, accessible by a path through the vineyards and offers superb views.
Frauenfeld is located on the outskirts of the canton of Thurgau, in the middle of the countryside. Its castle, built in the 13th century, dominates Murg River, a tributary of the Thur, which gave its name to the canton. We only visited it briefly, as our visit was cut short by a violent storm.
Glarus, nestled in the spectacular landscape of the Linth Valley, was almost completely destroyed by fire in 1861 and rebuilt in a grid pattern with rather austere buildings. As a result, the town has little charm, although a few buildings stand out, such as the railway station.
