One day out in and around St. Gallen

We have a friend visiting and he has Sunday to spend here before he leaves. Any recommendations for a one day excursion in and around St. Gallen? I thought of Braunwald, Glarus and somewhere along Walensee.

Thanks for any tips.

Säntis is closer, I think.

Re: One day out in and around St. Gallen

You're not giving us much to go on. What do you mean by "day out"?
Does your friend like cheese? Go to a show dairy in Appenzellerland.
Do they like lakes? Go to the Bodensee.
Do they like mountains? Take them up Säntis or Hoher Kasten or Ebenalp.
Do they like long hikes? Go just about anywhere in the area.
Do they like slow trains? Do the loop to Appenzell and back.
Do they like old towns and cathedrals? Take them on a tour round the old town and the cathedral.
Do they like zoos or water parks? Take them to Gossau or Säntispark.

There's a boatload of stuff to do round here! Braunwald is great too but it depends how long you want to spend getting there and back.

Yep, been there, simply because I live just a few miles from there. What they call Resort Walensee may be nice to spend a few days there; no idea, though, because I never did it.

However, for a brief visit it is about as exciting as the Main Post Office in St. Gallen City. Apart from two or three restaurants and bars, one of them right on the water, there is practically nothing you can do without checking in as a resort guest. Spend your money elsewhere.
