(Kanton Appenzell Ausserrhoden, Switzerland).

On a sunroof, 400 m high about Lake of Constance, embedded in the hill landscape of the Appenzeller country, there lies the holiday and climate health resort Heiden (810 m above sea-level / 4000 inhabitants).

The varied hill landscape offers innumerable possibilities for excursions and walks. Tennis courts, an outdoor swimming pool and a Vita-course in the romantic forest park respond to the sportingly interested. Or you relax in the public medicinal indoor swimming pool in the health resort hotel and medicinal bath Unterrechstein.

You can reach Heiden very easily. The Rohrschach – Heiden mountain railway creates the connection with the main lines; moreover, eight bus routes lead star-shaped in all directions. With the car you can reach Heiden very well from Rohrschach, Rheineck or St. Gallen.

There is a list of numerous hotels, guest houses, bed and breakfast accommodation and holiday homes in Heiden, some of which are very good value. This is sent out with the course program, or you can ask our secretary’s office to send it out to you.
During the foundation training course there is the option of sharing a rented holiday home with other students, which can work out to be an ideal solution.
