Sulgen

The various parts of the village of Sulgen, gateway to Oberthurgau, unite all aspects of Thurgau. The River Thur, vineyards, traditional farmhouses, orchards and fields. All that and more is there to discover on a visit to Sulgen.
A dense network of cycling, hiking and skating routes lead through Thurgau. But that's not the only reason why the region is ideal for an outing in the fresh air. On the paths alongside the River Thur you'll find green riverside landscapes and the cheery chirping of birds. Colourful fields and orchards alternate with inviting villages. And in between, well-cared-for farmhouses and shady forests. The gently rolling hills are mostly covered with vineyards. Those tackling these heights are rewarded with good views and wonderful panoramas. Each season in Thurgau is particularly striking in intensity. In spring, the heady perfume of white and pink blossoms, in summer, lush green as far as the eye can see. In autumn, ripe fruit and golden hues.

The village of Sulgen, with 3400 inhabitants is as varied as Thurgau itself. The municipality near the River Thur is made up of several hamlets, each with its own individual characteristics. Sulgen, with its railway station and adjacent shopping mile, is the centre. Traditional farmhouses in rural settings are found in Bleiken and Donzhausen while Befang is predominantly residential. Grapes grown on Buchenberg are pressed in Götighofen. This vineyard is also the highest point in the district and on clear days affords a panoramic view from Säntis to the Bodensee lake. History is tangible in the hamlet of Hessenreuti. The «Stammhaus» building dating from the early 19th century, a former seat of nobility, is still dominant today.

As in other areas, industrialisation spread to Thurgau in the 19th century. From 1876, the coal needed by the factories was transported on the Sulgen-Gossau stretch of railway. The steam locomotives from those days still take up the time of the «Lokremise Sulgen», a society of railway enthusiasts that maintains the historic railway wagons and locomotives.

Highlights

  • Go-kart track - test your skill as a racing driver on lap after lap.
