Taminaschlucht Reviews & Ratings
Good exercise to walk up and down to/from Taminaschlucht. However i thought there was an area to swim in hot springs but there was none. 😞
We went to visit the Light Ragaz show of 17.30. You need to pre-order your tickets online and be at the tourist info in Bad Ragaz between 16.30 and 17.00 hours to get a wrist band after showing your online purchased tickets which grants you access to the tour. Price is 25 CHF per adult. You can park your car in the parking garage under the tourist info point in Bad Ragaz. Fee is 2 CHF per hour and if you just go to see the tour you will park 2 hours in the garage. The parking fee machine only takes Swiss Francs coins and bills and Euro bills. No Euro coins and no cards of any kind, so be prepared. When paying with an Euro bill, you get your change in Swiss Francs against the very unreasonable 1:1 conversion. Free clean toilets in the tourist info and parking garage. Tickets include the bus ride from right in front of the tourist info on the other side of the street to the schucht. There is absolutely no way to get to the schlucht with your own car so you need to park in Bad Ragaz. No exceptions and no other ways. Sitting on the left side in the bus going to the schlucht and on the right side going back offers the best views over the water flow right next to the very narrow road the bus will drive over. There's a limit of 90 tickets sold and people will be divided over two busses. The light show we only found moderately impressive. The light show in Eindhoven The Netherlands each year at the totally free Glow event offers way more stunning light effects. There is a story being told during the walking tour which is told both in German and in English, which is nice. It's only about the gold all the time with which they indicate the hot water source that origins in the schlucht. The story gets boring real soon. You get to feel the nice hot water yourself through a tap. The water flow in the schlucht was very muddy when we were there. If you go with the regular flow of people you will get through the walking tour in 30 minutes. If you really stick at every point to watch the entire show and take pictures you will spend one hour. The bus back departs 1.5 hour after arrival at the schlucht, so it was 19.00 hours for us. That gives you plenty of time to see everything. It's best to just stick behind at the tour to avoid visiting all stops with a huge group of people. You won't get wet other than a few drips of water on your head and it doesn't get really cold in the schlucht. All in all we didn't find it worth 25 CHF per person. Especially considering that without the light effects you can visit the schlucht during the day for just 5 CHF per person. That would be worth it, 25 CHF isn't. It's totally safe to bring kids. Our kids of 3 and 4 didn't enjoy it very much though.
Breath taking natures beauty.
Well worth a visit, i was impressed.
Lightragaz is great. Must see...
How do we get the tickets in the vending machine? Are paper bills and credit cards allowed or is it just the 5 swissfranks coins?Answer Report Abuse
