Directions
The starting point in Brunnen is the Tourist Information. Right nearby is the confectionery Schelbert. We recommend that you fill your picnic basket before setting off. You drive east of the railroad line to the viaduct, a short distance along the Schwyzerstrasse in the direction of Schwyz and after the restaurant Chlosterbächli turn right in the direction of the monastery Ingenbohl. At the traffic ban turn left and drive past Holcim and take the short climb to Schönenbuch. Enjoy the quiet side road with great views. At the end of the road turn left towards Ibach until you reach the Muota bridge on the main road. Now you have to pedal hard past the shopping center Mythen Center and the knife factory Victorinox to the traffic circle in front of the Schwyz main square. At the traffic circle take the second exit towards Seewen SZ (Bahnhofstrasse). Follow this road until you reach the museum "Forum Schweizer Geschichte". Now dive into the adventure course of the Middle Ages.

 

After the museum stop, get back on the saddle with much anticipation for the picnic. Ride along Bahnhofstrasse in the direction of Seewen and take the turnoff to the left at the Bundesbriefmuseum, so you can bypass the main road. It goes delightfully downhill between lush meadows. At the end of the road, turn right and go straight on to the Schwyz-Seewen train station. After the station, take the underpass to Unterseewen and always keep right. At the intersection of the highway exit turn left in the direction of the ice rink and Seebad Seewen. Now you are at the Lauerzersee and follow road around the lake. After circling the lake, drive again in the direction of Unterseewen and now always keep to the right, at the foot of the Rigi. At the restaurant Alpenrösli it is worthwhile to take the climb to the right, you will then have a beautiful view of Brunnen, Lake Lucerne and the mountains of Uri. At the historic wooden bridge over the Muota you drive straight ahead and at the restaurant Pluspunkt you also drive straight across the crossing. At the end of the road, turn right into Bahnhofstrasse and after 300 m you will reach your starting point again.
