Obstacles for walkers

Swiss Path: Flüelen - Brunnen / Photo: outsideisfree.ch


Along the following paths or sections, you must expect trail closures or difficult conditions. Please take the suggested diversions.

Rütli–Seelisberg (section A): barbecue spot with wood

At the start of the Path on the Rütli: lovely barbecue spots with wood.

Seelisberg–Bauen (section B): barbecue spot and play area

In Oberdorf, 20 minutes from the Seelisberg funicular station, nice barbecue spot with play area.
Approx. 20 minutes further on in the pine forest: another spot with large table.

Bauen–Isleten (section C): picnic spot in the tunnel

Approximately halfway between Bauen and Isleten there’s a small picnic spot in a tunnel overlooking the lake.

The Tellsplatte boat landing stage is closed

The Tellsplatte boat landing stage has had to be closed and is inaccessible for the SGV cruise boats. The structural condition of the landing stage is so poor that passenger safety could no longer be guaranteed. Operations will resume here no earlier than the 2021 season. A diversion is currently being tested out for the ‘Swiss Path’, which incorporates the Tellsplatte boat landing stage. The aim is to keep the trail open.

The Tellsplatte can still be reached by car or on foot as before. The Tell Chapel can be reached via the walking trail. At the Tellsplatte boat landing stage, the walking trail is being bridged with a temporary pedestrian footbridge.

Additional information is available from the boat operator Schifffahrtgesellschaft des Vierwaldstättersees (SGV) Ltd by calling: +41 41 367 67 67

The 40-minute stretch between the Tell Chapel and Sisikon features a barbecue spot every 10 minutes or so.
