Three Ponds above St. Gallen

This one-hour stroll, only a hundred meters above the city of St. Gallen, takes visitors past Notkersegg Monastery, the three former water storage ponds now used for bathing, and through the historically important Mühlenen gorge back to St. Gallen's Abbey Precincts and directly to the city centre.

Entlebuch: Trail along the Emme River

The trail leads along the bank of the Emme, a rivulet, from Littau to its sources behind Sörenberg. The entire trail along the bank of the Emme is easy to hike. Only between Schüpfheim and Flühli are there some steep stretches.

Between the French and German-speaking Regions

This easy, three-hour hike that connects French and German-speaking Switzerland begins in Schwarzsee. From here ascend to the Euschels Pass and continue to Jaun, the only Swiss-German village in the French-speaking Gruyères region. Indeed, the Euschels Pass itself is very close to the language barrier.
