  • Karl Bickel creates a place of introspection, meditation on man and his goals, his life - and his company forms with the Pax time, the time of peace, whose basic idea is peace for all. It is a place of tranquility where you can reflect if you like this or it is amazed what the man is all able for me. I recommend it to every time to have seen

  • If you're time in Walenstadt Lakeside, you give you a detour to the Walberg. If you prefer not so athletic, can Postsuto or car as far as the road leads further up go to the rehabilitation clinic. 20 minutes after parking the peace monument surprised then, Pax time, which reminds me of a Roman temple. It was built by Karl Bickel for 25 years. If you like sports Luch can from here to the via ferrata. The sliding starting point screen, next door has been equal, was unfortunately locked.

  • From here you have a wonderful view, which is very much recommended. The Memorial itself is something for art lovers and Ravina. It is impressive, however has not captivated me.

  • 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!
