Thurgau, the cyclist's holiday paradise on Lake Constance
This region characterised by snug farming villages, the occasional little castle, peaceful woods, numerous orchards and vineyards and Lake Constance has a very natural feel and seems to be waiting to be explored. Several villages and towns with historic buildings provide visitors with an opportunity to gain insights into the area's past.
Toggenburg follows the course of the Thur River in an almost 50-kilometer arc from its origins between the mighty Säntis Massif and peaks of the Churfirsten up to the town of Wil. Many creative events and offerings attract visitors in summer to the lush green hiking region and in winter to the familiar winter sports areas.
This much-loved holiday destination on the Gotthard massif has a lot to offer. From the mild southern shores of Lake Urner and the picturesque villages - often under preservation order - or the romantically wild valleys, to the idyllic mountain lakes and the gleaming snow fields of the majestic mountains, many of them over 3,000 m high.
