This walk takes one up behind the village and offers spectacular views of the lake and surrounding mountains as well as an impressive picture of the village below.
This interesting circular walk around the village passes traditional farmhouses, lush meadows and fields full of fruit trees whilst offering ever-changing views of Mt. Rigi, Lake Lucerne and the surrounding mountains. The All Saints Chapel in the Unterdorf is well worth a visit.
