If you don't go to the Drei Weieren while visiting St.Gallen, you missed out on the most beautiful spot of the city! It is so quiet and relaxing up there, and it is beautiful in each season of the year. I highly recommend it!
You should walk up here if it's a clear day, won't regret it. In summertime you can picknick by one of the lakes, play soccer, go for a swimm or just watch the locals doing their stuff.

Nothing compares to the quiet walk up by the three lakes. On a beautiful day you can not only overlook St. Gallen but also all the way over to Germany. The view to the lake of constance is in each daylight a blessing to the...More
"The three ponds" (drei Weieren) - only 15 minutes from the city of St. Gallen - is an area of recreation: beautifull walks, swimming areas, Minigolf, nice restaurants, unforgettable views on the city, the lake of Constance (until Germany), the monastery of Notkersegg etc. To...More
Wether it is just for a walk, a jogging round or for a longer hike in the woods above the 'three ponds' - or even better for good long swim in the cool water - you will find out, this is the place you want...More
We were told about this place by the reception at our hotel. So we made sure to have enough time in the afternoon to go up there, after having been to the obvious attractions like the abbey and its library. The Weieren offers a great...More

Yes it is within walking distance from the youth hostel St. Gallen. Actually it will take you about 10 Minutes to walk up. The guys at the hostel can explain the way to you. You can enjoy the walk around the little lakes. With the weather nice as it is now you can go for a little swim. The water will be a little cold but you can relax and get some sun. You can just enjoy the view over the town. Or you'll eat something in the restaurant beside the family lake. If you would like to discover the old St. Gallen you walk up from the youth hostel along the lakes and down on the other side. Where you'll reach the station of the Mühleggbahn a little funicular railway. Once there you can enjoy a coffee and a piece of cake at Rippuner cafe. Then you can walk down to the town or you enjoy a little walk down through the small valley (10 to 20 Minutes). You will end up just on the back of the St. Gallen Cathedral and Library which is a UNESCO cultural heritage monumental. I hope this was of any help. Wish you a lot of fun exploring my hometown.
