Arrival in Altdorf
Altdorf – Muotathal
With the post bus to Bürglen and cable car ride to Ruogig. The first section of the Tell-Trail leads you along the Via Suworow over the Chinzig pass. Continue through the Wängital framed by peaks, and then along the Hüribach into the Muotathal.
Muotathal – Brunnen
First a leisurely hike to Schlättli and with the world's steepest funicular up to the mountain village of Stoos. The hike from Chlingenstock to Fronalpstock is a classic with great views, and the final tour from Schwyzerhöhe to Brunnen is an idyllic finale.
Brunnen – Luzern
You can take the cable car up to Urmiberg from the shores of Lake Lucerne. This is followed by a challenging hike past the Gätterlipass and the Burggeist mountain inn to Rigi Kaltbad. A wonderful panoramic view of the nearby peaks accompanies you today along the entire route. Take the rack railway down to Vitznau and a boat trip to Lucerne.
Luzern – Stans
Bus ride to Kriens and an idyllic hike through the Chrienser Hohwald. The paths become rougher from Fräkmünt onwards. You circle the Klimsenhorn and hike on countless serpentine turns up to Pilatus. From here it takes you back down into the valley to Alpnachstad. Short train ride to the stage town of Stans.
Stans – Engelberg
The Cabrio-Bahn takes you up to the top of the Stanserhorn and offers you a panoramic view of the mountains of Central Switzerland. But soon it will be time to turn your back on Pilatus and Lake Lucerne, because today's stage is demanding. You follow the Nidwaldner Höhweg to the Storeggpass and then descend to the Eggen cable car station. Short hike to Grafenort and by train to Engelberg.
Engelberg – Älggialp
Cable car ride via Trüebsee to the Jochpass. The following hike is one of the most beautiful tours in Central Switzerland. From Engstlensee you hike over the Spycherflüe to Melchsee-Frutt.
The second part of the tour takes you past the Hochstollen and along rocky paths to the Seefeldsee. The Tell Trail leads you through the marshy nature reserve of Sachsler Seefeld to the center of Switzerland. The night on the Älggialp is something very special.
Älggialp – Lungern
Countless Alps accompany you today on your way down to the valley. From the marshy plateau of Älggialp you hike through small forests towards Brünigpass. The turquoise-blue water of the Lungernsee greets you from afar, and you reach the lake after a strenuous descent along narrow paths.
Lungern – Brienz
A highlight awaits you at the end of your tour. You take the cable car up to Turren and hike from there via Rückenegg and Zwischenegg to the Brienzer Rothorn. An impressive panoramic view of the Bernese Oberland and Lake Brienz is spread out before you. Travel with the Rothorn Bahn to Brienz.
