Destination

Grafenort

Turn-by-turn directions

At the beginning we circle the Stanserhorn. The start for this multi-day tour is the Allweg Chapel. On small forest roads and through the forest we reach "Bluematt" and via "Ahornhütte" in a big zigzag to "Blatti" on the Stanserhorn ridge. Then 500m down to Wiesenberg. In the Wirzweli area there are various overnight accommodations. The next morning is less strenuous, on the high-altitude hike over the western Engelberg valley we reach Diegisbalm and Bielen. The cable car finally takes us down to the valley, it takes half an hour to the Grafenort train station.
