The diverse vacation region between Lake Walen and Sarganser Land in Eastern Switzerland gets its name from Johanna Spyri’s world famous Heidi story. Well-known destinations include the skiing and hiking regions of Flumserberg and Pizon as well as the thermal, wellness and golf oasis of Bad Ragaz.

The Heidi story is an overarching theme. There is a Heidi path and a Heidi house in the neighboring Bündner Herrschaft; the Heidi Musical has already been performed several times. There are other sights, too: the spa city of Bad Ragaz with the Grand Resort Bad Ragaz, its wellness offerings, casino and exclusive golf courses; the skiing and hiking regions of Flumserberg and Pizol; the Lake Walen, as well as the medieval castle of Sargans.

  • Tamina Gorge Bad Ragaz - at one time a healing bath, the Old Pfaefers Bath, is open to visitors. The oldest baroque spa building in Switzerland, it also houses a monastery- and and spa-museum.
  • Tamina Thermal Springs Bad Ragaz - known since the early Middle Ages, today these acratothermal springs have the greatest amount of water in Europe (36.5 degrees Celsius).
  • Sargans Castle - an old comital castle and an important local museum. In the castle restaurant one can taste wine and savor knight’s menus, while enjoying the spectacular view.
  • Pizol with Five-Lake-Tour - five crystal clear mountain lakes and the magnificent panorama of the Eastern Swiss Alps are your reward for the extensive tour.
