Exploring the Canton
The canton of Thurgau is located in the northeast of Switzerland, between the cantons of Zurich and St. Gallen. The northern part of Thurgau shares borders with Lake Constance, the Rhine River, and Germany.
Thurgau is known for its beautiful vineyards, apple and pear orchards, and cider production. We had the opportunity to taste one of their wines, a wonderful product to pair with their artisanal cheeses.
As Thurgau is geographically located near Lake Constance, it is an ideal place for those who wish to enjoy nature. There are thousands of kilometers of hiking trails, bike paths, and a large beach. The terrain is relatively flat, making the area ideal for families. Why not plan a family trip to Thurgau and enjoy a bike ride or a walk on the theme trails (Altnau apple trail and Weinfelden wine trail).
