Aussicht von der Marienhöhe in Seelisberg auf das Rütli, den Urnersee und die beiden Mythen

Weg der Schweiz

Zur 700-Jahr-Feier der Eidgenossenschaft 1991 schenkten die Kantone den Schweizerinnen und Schweizern einen Heimatwanderweg: den Weg der Schweiz. Er verläuft als 35 Kilometer langer Panoramaweg rund um den südlichsten Arm des Vierwaldstättersees, den Urnersee. Er lädt dich ein, Geschichte zu erwandern, eröffnet dir intakte Natur und ermuntert zu Selbstgesprächen.
