Culinary Panorama Trail in the Unesco World Heritage Site

This culinary tour will lead you to the Tectonic Arena Sardona UNESCO World Heritage Site. Nowhere else are you able to see the formation of the Alps as well as here.

The Alpine formation can scarcely be seen as clearly as in the Tectonic Arena Sardona, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here, 270 million-year-old rocks rise into the air. It was formed when the continents of Europe and Africa collided. Explore the Pizol and immerse yourself in the spectacular mountain landscape. Enjoy the far-reaching view from the St. Gallen Rhine Valley to Lake Constance. You will be spoilt with culinary delights in the Pizolhütte and the Laufbodenstübli.
