Description

The 35-kilometer long Swiss Path was created as a joint project by all cantons on the occasion of the 700-Year Anniversary of the Confederation (1291 - 1991). The path begins on the Rütli Mountain, the birth place of the Confederation, leads around Lake Urn and ends in Brunnen at Platz der Auslandschweizer.

The thematic hiking trail is well constructed and connects sights worth seeing such as Schillerstein, the pilgrimage chapel Maria Sonnenberg, the little castles of Beroldingen and A Pro, as well as the Tell Chapel and the old Axenstrasse (Axen Street). The multifaceted Swiss Path: A lake landscape with historic and religious sites at the original and spiritual heart of Switzerland.
