    From Ziegelbrücke, parallel to the Linthkanal on the dams, there is a hiking trail, a lateral drainage canal and other energy routes. In 2013, the construction work was completed: (see "Linth" at Wikipedia)
    The new Linthwerk is a recreational area for the population and attracts many walkers and cyclists on some 70 kilometers along the canals. There are bathing areas, a campsite, waterways and riding areas accessible by boats. In order to prevent conflicts between visitors and nature conservation, "rules of the game", which are recorded on information boards, apply. Numerous panels and steles orientate on the history, construction and peculiarities of the Linth works. Some bunkers from the Second World War are equipped with pictures, two can be used as panoramic terraces. All information sources together form an "open-air museum" on the Linth.

    Nice to Walenstadt. You can get back to whom it is too far by train.
