Öffentliche Anlage/Einrichtung Heidiland


An idyll like from a picture book


The Weisstannental has many unique natural beauties. Natural beauties that invite you to go hiking and always elicit amazement from the locals and guests. Where else can you find so many waterfalls, well-kept mountain meadows and Alps? Eagles and ibex are among the attractions of this lonely, beautiful area. The idyllic Weisstannental is located in the middle of the Heidiland holiday region in the largest municipality in the canton of St.Gallen (Mels). A well-developed road leads from the Mels village square about 12 km to Weisstannen. The valley consists of two villages or hamlets. The actual village of Weisstannen is located at 1000 m above sea level and Schwendi at 900 m above sea level. The mountain top of the Grosse Schibä is hindered in the Weisstannental at 2937 m above sea level. Height the highest point within the municipality of Mels. Offers for all ages can be found here. The hiking trail between Schwendi - Weisstannen - Alp Siez also invites older people and families with children to a leisurely walk. But the Weisstannental also has a lot to offer for mountain hikers. Also worth mentioning is the geology of the Weisstannental. It is surrounded by the phenomenon of the tectonic arena Sardona and thus forms the gateway to the UNCESCO World Heritage Site declared in 2008.
