Recreation, exercise, nature - treat yourself to a break in the Schwyz valley basin.

 

The tour starts at Brunnen. On a flat path, the tour leads along the hill of Ingenbohl Monastery from the centre of Brunnen. After a slight ascent, you will reach Schönenbuch in Wiler and enjoy a beautiful view of the valley and the capital Schwyz, your first stage destination. In the Schwyz Museum 'Forum Schweizer Geschichte' you will witness the oath of the three Swiss Confederates on the adventure course. After much history, your head now needs fresh air and your belly also needs to be taken care of. Redeem your picnic voucher at the Reichmuth butcher's shop and cycle to the banks of Lake Lauerz with your basket of delicacies. There are many secluded spots around the lake, choose your favourite one. After the break the ride around the lake continues, maybe the next stop for the ferry crossing to Schwanau Island will soon entice you. Back to Brunnen, the route always follows the foot of the Rigi.

The whole route is asphalted.

Turn-by-turn directions

The starting point in Brunnen is the Tourist Information. Ride east of the railway line to the viaduct, a short distance along Schwyzerstrasse towards Schwyz and after the Chlosterbächli restaurant turn right towards the Ingenbohl monastery. At the traffic ban, turn left and drive past Holcim and take the short climb to Schönenbuch. Enjoy the quiet side road with great views. At the end of the road, turn left towards Ibach until you reach the Muota bridge on the main road. Now pedal hard past the Mythencenter shopping centre and the Victorinox company to Schwyz's main square. At the parish church turn left into Herrengasse. Here you will find the Reichmuth butcher's shop. We recommend that you fill your picnic basket before visiting the museum, as the butcher's shop takes a lunch break. Use the small alley to the left of the butcher's shop and you will reach the museum 'Forum Schweizer Geschichte' directly. Now immerse yourself in the adventure trail of the Middle Ages.

 

After the museum stop, get back on the saddle with plenty of anticipation for the picnic. Ride along Bahnhofstrasse in the direction of Seewen and take the turn-off to the left at the Bundesbriefmuseum, so you can avoid the main road. It goes delightfully downhill between lush meadows. At the end of the road, turn right and continue straight on to Schwyz-Seewen railway station. After the station, take the subway to Unterseewen and always keep right. At the intersection of the motorway exit, turn left towards the ice rink and Seebad Seewen. Now you are at the Lauerzersee and follow the road around the lake. After circling the lake, drive again in the direction of Unterseewen and now always keep to the right, at the foot of the Rigi. At the Alpenrösli restaurant, it is worth taking the climb to the right, you will then have a beautiful view of Brunnen, Lake Lucerne and the mountains of Uri. At the historic wooden bridge over the Muota, go straight on and at the Pluspunkt restaurant, also go straight across the crossing. At the end of the road, turn right into Bahnhofstrasse and after 300 m you will reach your starting point again. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
