Culinary Hike in the Rhine Valley between Au and Marbach

Description

The culinary hike in the St.Gallen Rhine Valley is varied in every aspect. The route leads past meadows, forests, inland canals and vineyards as well as houses and settlements. Basically, the tour is not very strenuous as it is mostly flat.

The only exceptions are the ascents to Restaurant Maienhalde and later to Romantik Restaurant Schloss Weinstein. Here the «Rheintaler Höhenweg» climbs a little steeper, but the effort is worth it as you are rewarded with culinary delights and views of the Rhine Valley and surrounding region.

In between you can relax and enjoy the main course on the flat stage and especially in the inner courtyard of the Businesshotel Forum Widnau. Get to know and love the St.Gallen Rhine Valley.
