Railroad operation until 29.10.2021 only with Bad Ragaz gondola lift. 30.10.-1.11.2021 all lifts on Pizol in operation.

IMPORTANT: All hiking trails from 2200 meters above sea level are snow-covered and have icy spots. Only accessible with good hiking equipment and hiking experience.


Hike past the mountain stream, information boards on the UNESCO World Heritage Site Sardona and a diverse floral display. The route is part of the 4-summit tour on the Pizol.

On the hike to the Garmil we experience exciting insights and views into the UNESCO World Heritage Site Tectonic Arena Sardona. Information boards partly line the way and the view from the summit to the surrounding mountains and the Sarganserland is simply breathtaking. Flora and fauna can be admired particularly beautifully at the beginning of summer.

4 Summit Tour on the Pizol

The Pizol area is known for its breathtaking panoramic views over the St. Gallen Rhine valley to Lake Constance. Nowhere can the view be enjoyed as undisturbed as on the highest peaks of the hiking area. The hike on the Garmil is part of the 4 Summit Tour on the Pizol. The stages Garmil, Gamidauerspitz, Hochwart and Pizol can all be hiked independently of each other, but can also be combined as desired.

The Berghotel Gaffia is the ideal overnight accommodation and starting point for this tour, especially for combinations of the 4 Summit Tour.
