Oelberg Bike

Oelberg Bike is a route on the border of Toggenburg and the Rhine valley. There are a number of viewpoints that provide breathtaking and unforgettable views of the Rhine valley, and also Obertoggenburg.

The route leads down into the Rhine valley to Grabs. Even during the rapid descent into the valley, you cannot help but notice the view. The only time the route is exerting is on the way up to Gamperfin, above Wildhaus.

The highest point of the route is reached at Oelberg. You can treat yourself to a break in an alpine tavern shortly after before travelling through Oberdorf and back to Wildhaus. Shortly before arriving, the route passes the birthplace of the reformer, Huldrych Zwingli.
