St. Gallenkappel is not really your typical tourist hotspot where one sees Asians and tourists taking pictures. However, one meets natives wandering the hills.
There are quite a few reasons for going there sometime. Looking at the town and, of course, tot he south-west, one can see the Linth plain which connects the Walensee with the Lake Zürich by means of the Linth channel . Completely submerged during the last ice age. One can also see the „King of the foothills oft he Alps“ – the Speer. This is Europe`s highest conglomerate mountain (1952m) with a view like from a post-card. Followed by a panorama chain oft he Glarner Alps, this time from a different perspective.
By the way – did you know that the Linth channel allows for swimming and boating over the summer?
