Bains des Pâquis

A simple, harmonious structure, the Bains des Pâquis melt discreetly into the countryside around the harbour. Backing onto the jetty, the pools enable bathers to enjoy the view over the town, while the beaches look out onto the whole lake. The spa is on the right bank of the lake and is open all year round: in summer the pools and the pump room are open and there is an entertainment programme. In winter, the sauna, the Turkish baths and steam baths are open.

In both summer and winter, the Bains des Pâquis provides a welcoming haven for sunlovers and those seeking rest. Located a few metres from the Jet d’eau, it affords breathtaking views of the lake. Appropriate activities are offered each season.

Lake Walen

Lake Walen in eastern Switzerland lies between the cantons of St.Gallen and Glarus. On the northern side, the Churfirsten mountain chain rises nearly vertically out of the water, in some places over 1000 metres high. There are numerous little places along the shore, such as Quinten with its Mediterranean climate and Betlis with the imposing Seerenbach Waterfall. The boats run all year round, although in winter the service is limited to the connection from Murg to the otherwise inaccessible Quinten.

Lake Walen (Walensee) in eastern Switzerland links the two cantons of St. Gallen and Glarus and forms the western end of the holiday region known as “Heidiland”, after Johanna Spyri’s world-famous Heidi story. On the northern side, the Churfirsten mountain chain rises nearly vertically out of the water. On the other side of the lake is the popular winter sports and hiking region of the Flumserberg.
