This easy hike takes you from Klewenalp to the pilgrim village of Niederrickenbach. Recharge your batteries in Maria Rickenbach, a natural high-energy zone. The hike offers wonderful panoramic views of the mountains and of Lake Lucerne.

The hike begins at the Klewenalp mountain station, near the marmot enclosure and Ricola herb garden. In addition to the beautiful chapel, there are also a couple of cozy restaurants worth a visit. A gentle climb toward Staffel brings you to a teepee village at the foot of Schwalmis. After about an hour you'll reach Bärenfallen, from where you'll have a great view of Lake Lucerne. Next comes a steep descent down to Ahorn.
If you look below you'll see Niederrickenbach. Here you can make a detour to Brisenhaus, but beforehand you might want to visit the pretty picnic area past Steinrüti alongside the reservoir. In the Maria Rickenbach region, there are plenty of places to grill a sausage. After you've had a break, it's just a few minutes to the Niederrickenbach cable car station.

Note(s)
Refer to the yellow hiking signs direction Niederrickenbach. From Klewenalp it goes up to the Alp Staffel, where you take the right branch of the easy gradient Bärenfalle. Then you walk along the marked trail up to Niederrickenbach.
