The Alpnach Kolping barbecue spot is located right by Lake Wichel and boasts a kettle barbecue in a lovely covered wooden hut. While the jacket potatoes cook on the grill, you can watch the ducks and swans or play hide-and-seek and romp around on the large adjacent meadow. With a bit of luck and binoculars, you might even spot a kingfisher.

Surroundings: by Lake Wichel, large meadow, shade

How to get there: From Brünigstrasse or the "Kägiswil Schlieren" bus stop, turn into Wichelseestrasse. From the bus stop approx. 800 m.
