Situated northwest of Lugano in Switzerland's stunning Alps, the town of Schattdorf is an excellent base from which you can explore the surrounding countryside, offering easy access to a wide variety of activities all year long. The village has been settled since the early 15th century and is home to a baroque style 17th century parish and pilgrimage church that delights visitors. The church features ornately carved altars and countless votive tablets left at the back of the nave by pilgrims passing through. Consider reserving a rental car for your visit to Schattdorf, as this will allow you to explore the scenic and mountainous surrounding countryside at leisure. The village lies mainly in a large valley but also stretches up to include the mountainside hamlet of Haldi, which lies more than 1,000 meters above sea level. In the summer, visitors can enjoy hiking in the surrounding mountains, while in the winter months the region is renowned for its excellent skiing and other winter sports.
