Read our Frequently Asked Questions

Buchs is renowned in this part of Switzerland for the quantity and quality of its shopping opportunities. Many flock to Buchs for the designer shops and boutiques but the city has other attractions if you’re prepared to hire a car and look slightly further afield than Buchs itself.

Begin with a visit to the beautiful Schloss Werdenberg. The best photographs of this are taken from across the lake. Then head off to the natural beauty of Gigerwaldsee surrounded by its imposing mountains. Finally, a little further away is the expanse of Lake Constance. A day spent leisurely cruising the lake is essential, all within easy access of Buchs with a rental car.
