2. Go on a Hiking Trip to Visit the iconic Berggasthaus Aescher-Wildkirchli
You may recognize this mesmerising cliff restaurant from the cover of National Geographic’s “Places of a Lifetime“. A short panoramic train from St Gallen and you will find yourself at the heart of one of Switzerland most remarkable hiking areas. The trail for reaching the Äscher mountain restaurant is about 3-hours long, so make sure you have plenty of energy (and water!) for the hike. Enjoy a delicious meal at the famous restaurant that stands upright at the foot of a vertical cliff face, and make sure you have a camera at the ready for some insta-worthy photos. And it’s no problem if you find yourself tired after a hearty meal- you can take the cable car back for even more panoramic views!
Endless green, fresh breeze, picturesque towns… these are just some of the things that make the cycling path from Romanshorn to Arbon so beautiful. Join a local illustrator for this refreshing cycling trip across the Canton of St. Gallen, and take in the beautiful scenery as your local guide draws your attention to the subtle architectural differences from town to town. At the end of this peaceful excursion, you will stop for a refreshing beverage and snack and leave with a caricature drawing of yourself as a souvenir! A great way to get active during your vacation and make a new friend!
