From gentle hills to snow-capped peaks and wide valleys, Eastern Switzerland stretches from Lake Constance to the cantons of Appenzell, Thurgau and Schaffhausen, offering a broad range of natural spectacles and cultural experiences to enjoy.
The Highlights of Eastern Switzerland
The breathtaking cable car from Säntis down into the valley has featured in various photos and videos, but there’s only so much a camera lens can take in; these marvellous sights have to be seen to be believed. The same goes for the thunderous Rhine Falls in Neuhausen and the mystical Tamina gorge; this is picturesque 360-degree nature at its best. Eastern Switzerland is a perfect destination for group trips starting out from Vorarlberg, as it offers both adventure and variety. But there’s also culture here to go with the natural sights, including the Abbey of St. Gall, home to one of the oldest and most beautiful libraries in the world. Undoubtedly, the wealth of possible activities, sights and highlights in this region are enough to cater for all tastes and fulfil all expectations for a varied group trip.
Delicacies from Eastern Switzerland
With a few Swiss francs to hand, there are plenty of delicious flavours to savour in Eastern Switzerland. Visitors simply have to try the typical Swiss cheeses here, while fine Swiss chocolates, pralines or “Appenzeller Biberli” are always a hit as souvenirs for those back home.
