Thurgauer Tannzapfenweg

This hike is representative of the hiking paradise in the Fischingen region. A steady ascent in shady woods leads upwards to splendid, far-reaching views. Conglomerate rock gorges in the Alpine foothills alternate with gentle hilly landscapes.
The starting point for the hike is the Fischingen monastery, a gem among Switzerland's historical buildings. It is easy to get to using public transport. A restaurant and hotel business is run in the monastery, along with a carpenter's workshop. It is definitely worth a visit. Guided tours for groups are also offered.

The hike is designed to make it possible to experience the characteristic features of the hilly landscapes of the Alpine foothills in the border region of the Thurgau, St Gallen and Zurich cantons. Shadowy sections of the diversely wooded area alternate with elevated paths that constantly reveal fresh views of Lake Constance and the Alps.

The section over the arête, the highest elevation in Thurgau, leads to the impressive geological formations of the Alpine foothill landscape. Between the arête and St Iddaburg, the deep gorge of the Murg gapes open with its jagged rock faces. From Ottenegg, the far-reaching view opens up over Lake Constance and the Hegau volcanic landscape.

In Ottenegg there is a statue of the Virgin Mary that commemorates the foundation of the orphanage in the Fischingen monastery (in 1879). The neighbouring simple forest chapel is dedicated to Saint Idda.
