The small historic town of Weesen on the shores of the Walensee also belongs to the small holiday region of Amden-Weesen in the canton of St. Gallen. The two locations of Amden and Weesen complement one another with their summer and winter attractions and combine an Alpine idyll with a southern beach atmosphere.

Summer

In summer, Amden-Weesen invites guests to relax and enjoy themselves. The Walensee offers a wealth of cooling summer pursuits, whether on water-skis, a surfboard, boat or underwater diving. In addition to less energetic sporting activities such as tennis, vita parcours and fishing, more courageous visitors can test their skills at abseiling down the Amden dam, climbing in the nearby Churfirst region, paragliding from Pizol, canyoning in the Rombach gorge or even sky skiing on the Walensee.

The mountain station (1300m) of the Mattstock chairlift is a popular starting point for hikes along the 110 km of marked walking trails in the holiday region. The Amden high-Alpine route from Amden to the neighbouring village of Arvenbüel leads through protected moor land. Alternatively, walkers with an interest in geology can find out more about the geological formation of the region on the geological trail which starts in Schänis and leads to Amden via Weesen.

Highlights

  • Walensee – swimming, waterskiing, windsurfing, diving, canoeing, boat cruises and sailing.
  • Betlis – the small village on the lakeshore is renowned for its mild climate. In spring, as well as after intense rainfall, the imposing Seerenabach waterfalls constitute an impressive sight.
  • High moor land near Amden – wet, barren, acidic soils and vegetation adapted to such conditions form a protected landscape here of national importance.
  • Geological Trail – the Schänis-Weesen-Amden geological trail is lined with information boards describing the geology of the region.
  • Sarganserland-Walensee-Glarnerland GeoPark – experience mining and geology at first hand; a wide range of excursions and guided tours.

Top Events

  • Weesen May Market – annual market in the small town of Weesen (May).
  • “Ammler Forest Festival” – every year various artists meet to perform in concerts at the Ammler Forest Festival (July).
