    Your first leg on the Via Jacobi starts in Rorschach. On Lake Constance, near the border with Austria, you can visit the beautiful lakeside promenade. From here you walk south and soon you have left the city behind. The Via Jacobi winds its way to St. Gallen through wide fields and small villages.Before you get to the center of Sankt Gallen, where the impressive cathedral stands, you can cool off at the Drei Weieren. The small lakes are characterized by wooden walkways, nostalgic boathouses and shady trees. The Drei Weieren are located on a hill from which you can enjoy a great view of the surroundings.South of Sankt Gallen you cross the Sitter and then wander through the recreational area Gübsensee. From here it is only three kilometers to your destination today, Herisau. The place welcomes you with a historic marketplace, medieval streets and a good selection of hotels and inns.
