Take a Gondola/ski lift up from Bad Ragaz or the multiple ski lifts from Sargans/Wangs up to Pizza, either for Skiing in Winter or the 5 Lakes Hike in Summer. Great views from 2000 to 2,500m in clear weather.

We went up to the pizol with our small kids to enjoy the tremendeous weather and sunshine. They made a path "Heidi Path" which is fun for kids - 3 to 12 years - and a no-stress excursion for the parents. The walk itself is...More

This is a little know place and even on a beautiful weekend in August did not feel crowded. The views are outstanding, including on the tectonic arean Sardona (world heriage side). There is a modest place to eat at the top and plenty of hiking...More

Tickets were pricey but the views were breathtaking (though it was my first visit to the Swiss Alps so I'm probably not a very demanding tourist). The mountains were truly picturesque, we had a nice walk, it didn't require much hiking skills.

A wonderful experience, reached by a variety of chairlifts and cable cars (day ticket) with amazing views and a sense of being on top of the world. Bring a packed lunch, a good backpack, good shoes, camera, and loads of water. The sun is strong...More

It is quite a ride, first with the funicular and than with the chairlift, to come to an elevation of 2200 m, but worthwhile! Even on a late summer day there are lots of flowers around or even a herd of capricorns - just to...More

After taking 3 long gondolas-cable cars rides there is a large lodge which was empty in the summer. The views at 2500 meters are superlative. We went for the 5 lakes trail which was well marked and relatively easy. 4 hours After an initial steep...More
