Description

The hike starts in the village centre of Bad Ragaz and then leads along the Tamina promenade to the Rhine. The Rhine also forms the cantonal border between St. Gallen and Graubünden. Once you have passed the Rhine, you are already on Maienfeld soil. Along fields, the path leads to the winegrowing village of Fläsch, which was awarded the Wakker Prize in 2010 because the structural substance is handled wisely there. Continue along the vines to Maienfeld - the original venue of the world-famous Heidi story. In Maienfeld you will find, among other things, the oldest documented winery in Europe - Salenegg Castle. As early as 1068, wines were pressed here. After a glass of "Herrschäftler", the path leads back over the Rhine towards Giessenpark Bad Ragaz. The idyllic park with the enchanting Giessensee is the green heart of the health resort. A few more meters and you are back on the fairground in the middle of the village center.
