In 2007, the song “Der Schacher Seppli“ was the number one hit on Swiss Television. Ruedi Rymann had newly interpreted the song, for which he had already received the Golden Record in 1982. The Schacher Seppli Adventure Trail in Giswil reminds us of the famous, meanwhile deceased yodeller from Obwaldnerland.
The Fluonalp is one of the loveliest of the Giswil Alps and the cows that graze here enjoy not only magnificent views, but a copious supply of the most delicious herbs.
Like an enormous wedge, the Lopper mountain chain separates the main basin of Lake Lucerne from Alpnachersee. Before the road and railway were cut into the vertical rock walls, Rengpass was the only link between Lucerne and Obwalden. Today, the pass has become one of the most popular bike loops of central Switzerland.
