VIP-Backpacker Card
 

Switzerland’s rural northeast (Ostschweiz in German) is not as mountainous as some other cantons, but compensates with lush green hills that are picture perfect. Bodensee (Lake Constance) is a big draw for summer recreation, while Stein am Rhein’s main square could be from a fairy tale. The Rhine Falls, Europe’s largest waterfall, near Schaffhausen, are a dramatic spectacle. The main urban centre, St. Gallen, is world famous for its extraordinarily Baroque abbey, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
