The name of this region already conjures up idyllic pictures in your imagination: in Heidiland in the east of Switzerland wide alpine pastures, imposing mountains and deep blue lakes await you. The myth of the lively girl in the Swiss Alps becomes reality here. We have put together ten varied hikes of varying degrees of difficulty for you. You can choose whether you only want to do a short hike in the Bündner Rhine Valley or an extensive summit ascent.

Foodies can look forward to fine wines and regional delicacies on the Maienfeld / Fläsch Wine Round. The 7-summit route in Flumserberg has incredible views over the region. The Tamina Gorge and Baroque Bad Pfäfers near Bad Ragaz are also well-worth a visit. The short routes GeoGalerie Flumserberg and Pizol Panorama Höhenweg can be undertaken with the whole family as they are just over an hour and relatively flat. You will get a feeling of "Dolce Vita" on the hike along the Riviera Walensee: vines, fig trees and the intense blue lake line the path.

Most of the hikes’ start and end points can be reached by public transport or car. For the panoramic high-altitude hikes, you can take the lift or cable car up high into the alpine mountains. Experience the wide plain of the Rhine Valley or rocky peaks and rustic alpine huts high above Lake Walen – with our Collection, you will find the right hike for you. You are guaranteed to find incredible nature and wonderful landscapes on all hikes.
