Tamina Valley

In the Tamina valley you will find impressive buildings and a lot of nature

From the world health resort Bad Ragaz a road leads up into the Tamintal. Here the largest arched bridge in Switzerland connects the two villages of Pfäfers and Valens. Pfäfers is famous for its former monastery and the Old Baths Pfäfers in the Tamina Gorge, where the healing thermal water from the Tamina Gorge used to be used for bathing. The sun terrace on the St. Margrethenberg is popular with hikers in summer and cross-country skiers in winter. Near Vättis a side valley of the Tamina valley branches off, the Calfeisental. Here you are in the middle of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Tectonic Arena Sardona. At the very back of the Gigerwaldsee, an artificial lake dammed by a 150-metre high wall, is the over 700-year-old Walser settlement of St. Martin. Today it houses a restaurant and also offers various overnight accommodations in the historic houses. The Tamina Valley is popular with hikers and nature lovers, and the Ringelspitz is also the highest mountain in the canton. St. Gallen.
