Culinary tip in the vicinity:

Stans Wuche-Märcht
Every Saturday morning from April to November, the Stans Wuche-Märcht is a meeting place. An ideal place to fill your bike rucksack with food. Bread, cheese, dried sausage, carrots, dried apple rings and of course the "Besch(t)" bar. All this can be found at the Stans Wuche-Märcht.

Destination

Ennetbürgen

Turn-by-turn directions

The trail leads along a forest road from Stans (Eichli sports facility) to Oberstöckmatt. On hot summer days, the ride through a forest is particularly pleasant. At Oberstöckmatt it is worth taking a photo break. The open view of Mount Pilatus, the Stanserhorn and towards Obwaldnerland is tremendous.

After that it becomes flatter and you pass the Obbürgen plateau until you reach the farm at Etschenried. There you have a wonderful panorama over the other side of Lake Lucerne, all the way to the Engelberg Valley.

Continue across meadows and past farms to the spacious Honegg fireplace. There are a few fence crossings between Etschenried and the public car park Honegg (please close the gates).

From Honegg it takes about 40 minutes to walk to the famous Bürgenstock mountain peak, with breathtaking views as far as Lucerne and the Mittelland.

Then continue on the road down to Ennetbürgen. Here you can take a detour to the St. Jost Chapel, also with a magnificent view over the lake and mountains.
