Sweeping views far from the madding crowd: set among impressive mountain scenery wth a view on the Mythen, this winter trail leads through snow-covered pine forests.


With this view over Lake Lucerne, the surrounding mountains and Central Switzerland stretching as far as the Black Forest, the stress of day-to-day routine is forgotten in no time. This leisurely winter trail in the Klewenalp-Stockhütte snow paradise starts on the Klewenalp (1600 m above sea level), high above the sea of mist. The mountain station of Nidwalden’s largest skiing area can be reached on Central Switzerland’s longest aerial cableway.

The trail passes along the Klewenboden ski practice slope and past Klewen Chapel, a listed building, towards Berggasthaus Tannibüel. It then carries on to Ängi Valley, passing through picturesque pine forests. The subsequent brief climb up to the Twäregg is rewarded with a view of the Schwyzer Mythen, Brunnen and surroundings.

The path winds its way down the Twäregg in a number of bends through the snow-covered forest. From Stockhütte mountain station, the cable car returns trippers to Emmetten. This charming mountain village is set in a beautiful location on a terrace in the Alpine foothills, overlooking the southern banks of Lake Lucerne.

An enjoyable tour includes the careful planning of the same. Please inform yourself in advance at the local information center about the route and weather conditions. Depending on the season and weather conditions, this route may be blocked or interrupted
