Charming black fir tree forests, bluish rivers, deep lakes and green pastures, covered in snow when winter comes, give the Neuchâtel mountains a paradise touch.
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.
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.
The idyllic Münster Valley is its own little world beyond the Ofen Pass. With lush green meadows and beautiful villages, it offers a contrast to the pristine nature of the nearby National Park. A visit to the valley is a must for culture lovers because of the frescoes at the monastery of St. Johann, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site.
