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!

A very romantic place in sommertime. Bathing, relaxing and amazing nature. An example of social paradise for common workers in the early years of the 20th century.

Great place to relax, cool down and enjoy the view. Drei Weiern offers a unique opportunity to swim in three natural lakes. There is no entry fee but lockers can be hired if required.
