Hiking: Alpine Panorama Trail

From Monastery to Monastery

For centuries, the black Madonna in Einsiedeln Monastery has watched over visitors from all over the world. Your journey along the Alpenpanorama-Weg (Alpine Panorama Trail) also begins here at Lake Sihl. An idyllic stage takes you through the enchanted moorland landscapes of Rothenthurm to the lovely Zugerland. This is followed by a detour to the Lion Monument in Lucerne before you walk out of town along the small river Emme. Now the Werthenstein Monastery comes into view. Many years ago, people here told of apparitions and miraculous healings, which is why a monastery was founded. Your hike comes to a peaceful end here, right at the gates of the Emmental.

Tour characteristic

Easy hiking trails that are easy to follow. Partly a little steeper ascent and longer stages, but can be mastered with some basic fitness. On the way you can shorten the walk by bus or train.
