Arrival to Einsiedeln
Einsiedeln – Unterägeri
This varied pre-alpine tour leads from the famous monastery village of Einsiedeln along an old pilgrims' path over the Chatzenstrick to the almost equally famous Rothenthurm high moor and over the Raten (view!) to the lovely Aegeri Lake in Zugerland.
Unterägeri – Zug
Very scenic stage in the heart of the Zugerland. Over high moorland, past countless cherry trees (Zuger Kirschtorte!), the vantage point at Alprestaurant Brunegg and the pretty St. Verena Chapel, you reach Zug.
Zug – Luzern
The first highlight after a leisurely walk along Lake Zug is the scenic Michael's Cross with its Inn and marriage chapel. After an up and down, the Dietschiberg follows, where you can experience golf at close quarters.
Luzern – Wolhusen
Lucerne and its surrounding communities can be admirably overlooked from the Sonnenberg. The Ränggschlucht (gorge) then offers an insight into the geology of the region. The highlight is the Werthenstein pilgrimage site with a famous Bernese miraculous image and the "Gnadenbrünneli", a fountain of grace, which is said to help with eye complaints in particular.
Wolhusen – Luthernbad
Many paths lead to the Napf – but no roads! One of the most beautiful approaches to the summit is the scenic range of hills via Menzberg. You can postpone the summit hike until tomorrow. Turn off shortly before the last ascent and spend the night in Luthernbad.
The panorama of the Alpine chain, Mittelland and Jura from the Napf is one of the most magnificent in Switzerland. A perfect panoramic route through the typical rolling landscape of old-world Emmental! Continually up and down along a mostly wide range of hills from the Napf, past small farmsteads, alps and woodlands to Lüderenalp.
Lüderenalp – Emmenmatt
The route leads through the heart of the Emmental via a long mountain crest with scattered farmsteads and varying views down into the wide valley of the Grosse Emme, then on up to the equally scenic Moosegg.
Departure or extension
The climb up the Napf is steep and good basic fitness is required even otherwise for the hike. As the ascent is to the north side, the trails going up to the Napf are wet and slippery in parts. You have well-developed and easy to walk hiking trails in other areas. It is possible to shorten the route easily, especially in the first part of the stretch till Wolhusen.
