  • Every nature lovers and hikers must have been at least once in Pax time. Very idyllic and with incredible views on the Walensee and the Churfirsten mountains! You could spend hours there. The nearest public transport station is 3.5 km (Walenstadtberg, Rehab BUS 443). By car to go closer. It has a small parking lot where it then only 5 minutes walk away.

  • Place an impressive, however, has nothing to do with Greek monuments:) with photos you can apply. I recommend because I really has its own charm.

  • Weird place with weird vibes. Beautiful view and possibly interesting architecture.
  • One of my favorit places in Switzerland.. love it..
  • grossartiges Mosaik
  • Worth a visit. A kind of Greek temple in the middle of Switzerland, not everywhere there. The Paxmal is beautifully built and is very beautiful to look at with its mosaic walls!
