Tips

  • Nadine

    The Paxmal is the life's work and pacifist total work of art of Karl Bickel. The Swiss artist built the work of art between 1924 and 1949. It lies high above the Walensee in front of the rising walls of the Churfirsten. The Paxmal is not a place of worship, but a quiet, peaceful place for inner recollection, contemplation and meditation. The left wall of the monument represents the earthly life: the human couple in their being and becoming, love and procreation. The right wall is dedicated to the spiritual life: the awakening, the wrestling, the looking and the rising. Very inspiring!

    I recommend taking the bus to Walenstadtberg or taking it to the clinic. The trail from Walenstadt to Walenstadtberg follows mainly the road
