Hint

Intro

The fifth stage encompasses a steep passage through a patch of forest and onwards to the largest alp in Switzerland, with around 1,200 cows, Urnerboden. Here, secluded forest trails are interspersed with beautifully quaint villages. Having conquered a few metres in altitude during the first section, the finishing straight to the stage destination is on level paths alongside the river.

Forestry work: Linthal, Nussbühl

As a result of continued work the roads are closed from Mon - Fri: 07.00 - 19.00 o`clock! On Saturday and Sunday you can walk at your own risk. The owner, the construction management and the forestry company reject any liability.

Description

From Linthal, the trail leads through a steep section of forest and climbs around 600 m to Braunwald. This traffic-free resort boasts many restaurants and other places to eat and drink. As an alternative to climbing on foot, visitors can take the Braunwaldbahn up the mountain as early as 7 a.m. „erklimmen“ and so enjoy the views in the morning sun.

From there, picturesque hiking trails lead to Nussbühl, where mountain restaurants and an inviting Alpine dairy “Beiz” establishment serve coffee and Alpine cheese for a well-deserved break. From Nussbühl, you then drop down quite significantly, before completing the final few kilometres along the Fätschbach stream to reach Urnerboden.
