A 35 km footpath was created around the southernmost part of Lake Lucerne to mark Switzerland’s 700th anniversary.
The Swiss Path is open. Please note that since 06 June 2020, ships have been operating according to a greatly reduced timetable. Keep to the distance rule of 2 m recommended by the Federal Office and avoid large crowds at barbecue & rest areas.
The Swiss Path is divided into a number of sections. Within the sections, however, there are many opportunities to shorten the walking time through use of public transport (boat, bus, train).
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.
