Walkable in stages
The entire Thorthour covers 28 kilometres and around 1400 metres in altitude. It takes eight to nine hours without breaks - and is thus a real challenge for both hiking fans and experienced trail runners. An exit or descent to Rothenthurm, Sattel, Alpthal, Trachslau or Einsiedeln is possible at almost any time. If you prefer a more leisurely pace, you can easily divide the hike into stages.
Enough drinks and picnic
Only the right catering makes the Thorthour an unforgettable experience. Enjoy our specially prepared Kronenmetzg power pack as a picnic on the way.
Rothenthurm is very easy to reach by public transport.
The SBB/Südostbahn (SOB) runs every half hour from Zurich to Rothenthurm.
The "Voralpen-Express" (Romanshorn - Lucerne line) travels to Rothenthurm from Eastern Switzerland and the Lucerne area every hour.
