Close your eyes, if you will, and imagine yourself in Switzerland. What do you see?
Snow capped mountains soaring above impossibly green meadows where dun cows chew lazily on sweet grass. A chorus of bells chiming out over the valley, the cow flicks her tail and takes another bite. A wood-shingled house, window boxes festooned with flowers, is perched on the steep mountain slope, the elegant slant of its roof providing shelter from inclement weather for farm machinery as well as animals. An elderly man stands in a car park, filling the valley with the deep echoing melody of his Alpenhorn.
Toggenburg is one of the most beautiful areas of north-east Switzerland and is everything you had ever imagined.
A dragons spine of peaks runs along one side of the valley, the highest of which is Santis rising over 2,500m, and the Churfirsten mountains, equally beautiful, along the other side. The alpine meadow is green and lush in mid September, still bursting with flora and fauna, and today the sun is shining and the sky is blue.
Switzerland. It’s just so Swiss.
