The idyllic Quinten is one of the few car-free villages in Switzerland. Only on foot or by boat to reach the place. Between the Walensee and the steep cliffs of the Churfirsten, traditional houses and buildings crowd each other. Because of the mild climate, vines, fig trees and citrus trees grow here.

I strongly recommend hiking Weesen to Quinten, rather than the other way round. As you get close to Quinten, you have to walk down uneven rocks, and going down is safer than going up it !
At Quinten, there are two nice restaurants, then you can catch the bus across to Murg (7.20 CHF, one-way) but this is not included in the SBB day card, or GA travel card.
