St Gallen and another city before Zurich


Ill be arriving in Zrh Airport on 7th. I plan to take a train to St gallen.

I have to be back to Zrh for work on 10th.

I have whole of 8th and 9th for sightseeing. Is 2 days too much for St Gallen?

Is there another city i can explore other than St Gallen?

Or should i visit another city and head to Zurich from there?

Will be great if someone could give me some suggestions:

St Gallen - ??? - Zurich.

However if you feel St Gallen is more than enough to spend 3 nights there, it would be nice if you could suggest some things I could do. Just to note, I'll be traveling alone.

Hi missileo

As you do not say which month you will be in Zurich it is difficult to say.

You can make excursions from St. Gallen. Appenzell would be one of them. Other great ideas are the Toggenburg and the Bodensee (lake Konstanz) area.

Otherwise you could go to the other direction from Zurich, to the Lucerne/Zug/Brunnen area where there is a lot to see and to do - see www.luzern.com and Top Questions about Lucerne (TA Lucerne forum), www.zurtourismus.ch and Top Questions about Zug (TA Zug forum), or www.Brunnentourismus.ch and Top Questions about Brunnen (TA Brunnen forum)

Hi Pore,

Thanks for the links.

I will be visiting St Gallen this Friday, and should be back in Zurich on Monday 10th.

Appenzell looks so beautiful.

A friend mentioned Konstanz too.

WIll check out these two places.

Thank you again!
