Turn-by-turn directions

Starting from the boat station in Weggis, walk along the lake towards Hertenstein, passing the All Saints Chapel in Unterdorf. Turn right after the restaurant HYG and follow the signs to Hotel Friedheim. After passing this hotel you will arrive at Hügerihof Farm. Now walk along Brünnistrasse to “Gastroformation SFG”. Take the path towards Herrenwald. Turn right when you come out of the forest. If you fancy a waterside barbecue there is a nice campfire site at Röhrli, where you can also swim. The hike continues along the road that passes the football pitch and the premises of the company Thermoplan. There turn right and you will get to the Hügerihof farm once again. This time follow the path straight on, which will lead to Höchistrasse and then the Friedheimweg. Here turn right and follow the street along the lake back to the boat station.
