Eastern Switzerland beckons vacation enthusiasts this summer

Published on : Wednesday, February 6, 2013

From the lush and velvety meadows of Appenzell to the rugged Churfirsten that tower high above the Walensee, Eastern Switzerland offers an incredible variation of panoramic views and cultural diversity.

The University town of St.Gallen dates back to 612 A.D and is a UNSECO World Heritage site. The famous Abbey Library attracts scholars from all around the world. From here, you have easy access to the storybook idyll of Appenzell with its colourful traditions and the intensely green landscape that easily could compete with Ireland’s famous green scenery.

Music is in the air between Alt St. Johann and Wildhaus in the Toggenburg with its “Tone Trail” where the “Klang Festival” brings traditional instruments like Alphorn, Yodel, Cowbells and “Alpsegen” in a very unusual way to life in combination with Music sounds from around the World.

Lake Constance borders Germany and Austria and is cradled by farmland and orchards, ideal for relaxing, hiking, sailing, surfing and canoeing. At the west end of Lake Constance, where the lake becomes the Rhine again, you find the charming city of Stein am Rhein. Further down, just a short walk from the medieval city of Schaffhausen, the mighty Rhine Fall rages over craggy cliffs.

Liechtenstein shares borders and currency with Switzerland. The Princes Castle sits high above the small capital of Vaduz. You find plenty of activities, from themed trails to winter sports. Malbun, still a well-kept secret, is a preferred winter destination for families.
