Arrival in Einsiedeln
Your trip starts in Einsiedeln, Switzerlands most famous pilgrimage place. Enjoy the shores of Lake Sihl and admire the monastery.
Einsiedeln – Brunnen
The trail over Haggenegg leads through the beautiful high valley of Alp towards the two Mythen peaks. The stately Au Convent and panoramic views of the Glarner Alps and the valley basin of Schwyz and Brunnen are feasts for the eyes.
Brunnen – Treib – Stans
This section includes a boat trip from Brunnen to Treib, the ancient refuge harbour at the point where cantons Uri, Schwyz and Nidwalden meet. The chapels along the way and the Winkelried memorial in Stans are worth seeing.
Stans – Sarnersee
Following the first ascent after Stans, impressive views open up to Stanser Boden, the Vierwaldstättersee and the Innerschweiz mountain peaks. Highpoint at the end of the section is the hermitage of Niklaus von Flüe and the Ranft chapels. In the end you reach the shores of Lake Sarnen with its emerald blue waters.
Flüeli affords outstanding views. The varied route follows the shores of the Sarneree and Lungernsee lakes and from Lungern church along the Brünigweg which, as a pilgrimage pfennig (coin) shows, was once a pilgrims’ path. Brünig offers a magnificent mountain panorama with the high Bernese Oberland summits and eternal snow.
The trail leads along sunny slopes above the Brienzersee lake, allowing you to experience an exceptionally lovely landscape.
