Niederrickenbach – Alpboden – Haldigrat – Brisenhaus – Musenalp (– Niederrickenbach)
Distance 11.5 km
The convent village of Maria-Rickenbach (Niederrickenbach) is reached from Dallenwil (Niederrickenbach lower terminus) with the aerial cableway. Many visitors pop into the Pilgerhaus near the summit terminus to learn the secret of the Alpöhi dessert. It takes half-an-hour to reach the lower terminus of the unusual chairlift to Haldigrat: it can only carry eight passengers a time. You then walk to the Brisenhaus and via Bärenfallen to the Musenalp opposite. After a snack – do try the well-known Nidwalden Bratchässchnitte – take the aerial cableways back down to the valley. The walking time from Haldigrat is two-and-a-half hours, not counting breaks.
"Alpöhi" dessert at the Pilgerhaus Maria-Rickenbach and then a "Nidwalden Bratchässchnitte" at Musenalp to round off the outing: in contrast to raclette, this cheese slice is made by melting grated cheese in a frying pan and spreading it over a slice of wholemeal bread.
