On a warm summer day, an e-bike tour can easily be combined with swimming pools.
On the Rohr/Alter Rhein near Lustenau: right on the bike path. Lawn for sunbathing and several good accesses to the water, some in a nature reserve (swimming allowed).
The bathing beach at the Rohrspitz is one of the few with… read more

Note: "Hot days" are also very hot above 2000 meters above sea level, especially if you walk 4/5 of them in the blazing sun 😄 By the way, this also applies to snowfields 🤯🙂

Roughly corresponds to the Thur-Weg (24) stages 5+6. There is a description on SwitzerlandMobility.
Almost all natural roads/paths except in the villages 👍 There was an unexpected amount of nature and seclusion to experience.
Quite a lot of forest trails on the route.
With 27 degrees (in the shade) the… read more

Rankweil was a popular place of pilgrimage in earlier centuries - also for the Appenzeller. In contrast to Einsiedeln, a pilgrimage to Rankweil could be completed in one day (there and back). Einsiedeln required 2 days with overnight stays (which many could not afford).

Short detour by foot to the Thur Falls.
PS: the Smartflower charging station in Unterwasser works if required

Actually, I had planned the return route in the Säntisalp Wideralp area. Since the (today, by the way, apere) Panzerstrasse was closed due to falling rocks (more likely due to avalanches), I had to change my plans.
Speaking of planning: this area is a military shooting range on some days, so always consult… read more

Just enjoy the late fresh snow, even if the sun didn't come out (anymore). But the frozen forests were a highlight.
There was no grooming 😅, but the conditions were still manageable (for me too), especially since the meters in altitude made today were modest. In the upper area nice powder 30-50 cm.
