A 35 km footpath was created around the southernmost part of Lake Lucerne to mark Switzerland’s 700th anniversary.
The Swiss Path is open. But the ship's stations are not served. Adhere to the distance rule of 2 m recommended by the Federal Office and avoid crowds of people 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.
