Chäserrugg
Eastern Switzerland's largest winter-sports/summer-Alpine-hiking area, Toggenburg is only an hour from Zurich, and remains hidden between the mighty Säntis massif and the seven snow-frosted Churfirsten mountains, and within yodeling distance of the borders with Austria and Liechtenstein. Planted on top of Chäserrugg, the easternmost of the seven peaks, is a restaurant from 2015 designed by Basel-based architects Herzog & de Meuron (they also added a new geometric, blond-wood façade to the existing cable car station). It’s hard to know which is more beautiful, the station—built with a clever slanted roof and long porticoes that allow for maximum winter sun exposure—or the scenery, which includes views on clear days of six countries: Austria, Liechtenstein, Germany, Italy, France, and, of course, Switzerland.
