To celebrate the 700th anniversary of the Swiss Confederation in 1991, the cantons gave the Swiss a homeland hiking trail: the Swiss Path. It runs as a 35-kilometre-long panorama trail around the southernmost arm of Lake Lucerne, the Lake of Uri. It invites you to hike through history, opens up intact nature and encourages you to talk to yourself.
What makes the Rütli meadow so special? And what’s the significance of the 40-metre-or-so-tall rock that emerges from Lake Uri? Countless little marvels from the past lie hidden around Lake Lucerne.
