Spent my 30th birthday on a 2d hike there. Beside the route bauen-seedorf (which was not very nice) we had the time of our life. Recommend to get proper hiking shoes if you want to keep a good pace and stay injury free.

Want to take a great hike while in Lucerne? This is it! Gorgeous scenery, well marked trails, and view that will leave you breathless. Thus is it. Bring your hiking shoes, walking stick and a camera.

Did this full walk over two days and loved it. Well signposted, great views and a wonderful sense of achievement The first couple of hours and last couple were fairly tough but other that that very manageable, would recommend.

This is a great path to walk around the lake. You do need time to take the walk and thoroughly enjoy the scenery so make sure you don't schedule your time too tightly!

If one has time, loves nature and long walks, that's a nice way to enjoy greenery and lakeviews while learning something about the history of the Swiss Confederation.

We did the Swiss path now several times. Not all of it at one go, but several times with several directions and sections. The area of the Vierwaldstättersee (Lake Lucerne) is one of the most attractive sceneries in Switzerland. We usuall went to our starting...More

Very nice 2-hour walk down from Seelisberg to Bauen. Came back by boat to the Rütli (Grütli) where Switzerland was founded in 1291. From Rütli to Seelisberg, it is a nice 1h30 steep uphill walk. There is a cable train from Seelisberg to Treib and...More

From Seelisberg to Brunnen the whole trip is 11 hours around the Urnersee. Easy but sometimes up and down 200 - 400 m. But there are a lot of options for small parts e.g. ship from Brunnen to Treib (15min) and walk to Rütli... More
