Facts about Tour de Suisse Stage Unterterzen

In Unterterzen, lake and mountains combine to form the perfect holiday package, offering hiking and water sports in summer and wellness and winter sports in winter.

Unterterzen is located on the beautiful, fjord-like Walensee (Lake Walen), which nestles between the proud Churfirsten mountain range and the Flumserberg. The shores of the lake are dotted with idyllic villages that are perfect for leisurely strolls. Thanks to the Mediterranean climate that prevails on the southern slopes of the Churfirsten, exotic fruits such as figs, apricots, kiwis and grapes thrive in the hamlet of Quinten.

The area offers the right activity for every visitor – be it walking, cycling, hiking, boat trips or sunbathing by the lake – in stunning natural surroundings.

Thanks to its central location, Zurich and St. Gallen are just an hour’s drive away. But Unterterzen also enjoys excellent public transport links by train, bus, boat and mountain railway. It is especially easy to reach from Zurich via the direct and comfortable S2 city train service. And a panoramic cable car whisks passengers up to the Flumserberg skiing and hiking area in just twenty minutes.

Unterterzen is part of the municipality of Quarten, which numbers some 3,000 inhabitants and is one of the largest in the canton of St. Gallen, covering over 61.75 km2.
