The Ringelspitz is the highest mountain in the canton of St. Gallen. Thanks to its completely free position and the great distance from other, higher peaks, it offers an almost unbeatable view from the Wetterstein and the Ötztal mountains to the Valais Weisshorn and the Berner Schneegipfeln, from the Adamello in the south to the dark heights of the Black Forest.
