Water plays a central role in the region. Partly thanks to the 36,5 °C warm thermal waters and also due to the numerous enchanting idyllic mountain lakes, waterfalls and of course the majestic Walensee lake.

History

Spa town Bad Ragaz

Around 1240 hunters discovered the source of the warm waters in the Tamina gorge. Soon the first bathing guests were being let down on ropes into the wild ravine in order to spend the day in the healing waters. Then wooden bathhouses were built across the thundering Tamina but following numerous fires and rockfalls, today's Alte Bad Pfäfers was finally built at the entrance to the gorge. Since 1840 the thermal waters have been piped down to the worldrenowned health resort Bad Ragaz.
