  • 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.

  • We drove there and parked at the bottom, from there a fresh 30 min inclined walk up mountain for any age and you'll reach the monument.
  • Weird place with weird vibes. Beautiful view and possibly interesting architecture.
  • One of my favorit places in Switzerland.. love it..
  • grossartiges Mosaik
  • A place for the power soak up or simply his thoughts to go to... Early in the morning the best, then it is still allein(er) ;)
