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 motif unites the region thematically. There is the Heidi House in Maienfeld and the Heidi Trail on the Pizol, among other interesting sites. 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.
Boat trips on Lake Walen, such as the extraordinary hamlet of Quinten, and several bathing opportunities around the lake cater to people who love the water. Adventure seekers can rappel down a dam wall, parachute in tandem or book a passenger flight in a glider. And in Bad Ragaz, one can relax at one of the golf courses at teatime.
