When the steamer "Gallia"- arrives on Lake Lucerne's Lake Uri at Brunnen, on its way from Lucerne to Flüelen, even the passengers travelling first class lay down their silver cutlery and succumb to the pull of history. Just around the corner, the Schiller Stone pays tribute to the creator of "William Tell"-, a national epic, and in the distance lies the Tellsplatte, steeped in legend. A short distance further on and the steamer arrives
at Rütli, the birthplace of the original confederation and the start of the "Swiss Path"-. Follow this trail to historical locations and picturesque beaches, passing spots perfect for windsurfing and sheer rock faces along 35 km of wonderful views.
