Route: St. Leonhard – Bad Ragaz – Bad Ragaz Thermal Baths

Bad Ragaz (502 m above sea level) lies at the valley entrance of the Taminatal valley in the cantonal area of St. Gallen in the Rhine Valley. The more than 1,000-km-long Rhine empties into the North Sea and has one of its source regions at the Graubünden Oberalp Pass (2,044 m above sea level). The highway A13 coming from Chur (595 m above sea level) splits northwest of Bad Ragaz towards Lake Walen in the west and Lake Constance north of it. Bad Ragaz is known for its thermal baths.

The health resort in the Sarganserland region supplies its baths from the Tamina Gorge, where 36.5-°C-warm thermal water springs near Bad Pfäffers (680 m above sea level) from a source that has been known since the 13th century. The Freudenberg ruin from the same century northwest of Bad Ragaz belongs to a larger castle complex and sits enthroned on a rocky hill in a good strategic position.
