Pizol, CH

The Pizol is a mountain in the Glarus Alps of northeastern Switzerland, overlooking Wangs in the canton of St. Gallen. At 2,844 metres above sea level, it is the highest summit of the chain separating the valleys of the Seez and the Tamina rivers, and the highest mountain lying entirely within the canton of St. Gallen.


There are five mountain lakes (Pizolseen) on Pizol: Wangsersee at Pizolhütte, Wildsee, Schottensee, Schwarzsee (2368 m) and Baschalvasee (2174 m). A small cirque glacier, the Pizolgletscher, lies above 2,600 metres on the northern side of the mountain.

Five modern gondola lifts and chairlifts transport the summer guests “as if they are flying” over the beautiful and eventful Pizol region.

There are 100 km of hiking trails, the Twärchamm climbing garden, launch sites for paragliders, mountain bike trails and idyllic mountain lakes for hikers and sports enthusiasts. The Heidi trail and the water forest are particularly suitable for families.

Twelve restaurants and mountain huts offer a variety of menu choices on the Pizol and right in the centre of the Pizol resort you can enjoy the hospitality of seven mountain hotels, three mountain guest houses, several mountain cabins, holiday homes and chalets with over 800 beds for overnight accommodation.
