Canceled Meetup

The St. Gallen Bridge Trail

Details

The 7.5 km trail passes through or under 18 bridges. The trail runs past eighteen viaducts, wooden and concrete bridges and suspension bridges and through the river landscape in the Sitter- und Wattbachlandschaft nature reserve. I just took my camera and went a few years ago. Great walk with my camera :)

here are some of my shots... not great I was a newbee... want to get better shots this time :)

It is a great trail to do in any weather. St. Gallen area shows better weather than Zurich for this walk so let's take our cameras and get outside :)
