Gastroenterologist/Hepatologist – Frauenfeld – Switzerland


Frauenfeld is the capital of the canton of Thurgau. This vibrant city has an attractive old town. The Frauenfeld castle can be found in the middle of this city centre. As the presence of the castle may indicate, the town is full of classic architecture and so traditional houses from the 18th century can be seen in the picturesque alleys of the town. In addition, Frauenfeld is the starting point for many cycling, skating and walking routes. Destinations such as the Seebachtal, the many castles and the fantastic panoramic views are very worthwhile to visit.
