In the village centre of Morschach we begin the circular hike around the village of Morschach, which first takes us along the "Swiss Path" towards Axenstein. Passing the old track of the electric rack railway, which brought noble guests from Brunnen to the Morschach Grandhotels between 1905 and 1969, we reach the uniquely beautiful panoramic terrace at Axenstein. After an extensive view of Lake Lucerne, we walk along the golf course past the restaurant, which is open to everyone, and on the left, shortly before the Schwyzerhöchi, we see a unique Druidenstein, a so-called granite foundling, which was transported there in the last ice age. From the Schwyzerhöchi we hike on to the Ferienhof Rüti. Here the valley basin of Schwyz lies at our feet and we enjoy a clear view of the Schwyz landmark: the small and large Mythen, with its steep cliffs. Via the car park of the cable car Morschach-Stoos and past the Nägelisgärtli we reach the highest point of our 2- to 3-hour hike and walk on a narrow path along the edge of the forest towards Dägenbalm. On the way back we go directly over the steep Dägenbalm road down to Morschach or make a small detour to the Lourdes grotto. This quiet place invites you to linger and relax before we walk back to Morschach. In and around the village there are many possibilities to continue the hike.

Schönen Weg, minus für Teile die auf Autostrasse läuft. Plus für Natur, Wälder und Landschafts-Aussicht. DOCH: mein GPS hat es als 6,5 Km angegeben. Statt 5,6.
