Destination

Niederrickenbach

Turn-by-turn directions

The monastery village of Maria Rickenbach (Niederrickenbach) can only be reached by cable car from Dallenwil. From there you can continue with an airy ride for those who are free from vertigo with the Musenalp cable car. On the sunny terrace of the Musenalp Alpbeizli you can enjoy drinks and simple dishes such as the famous "Bratkäseschnitte". We then hike over alpine pastures to Unter Musenalp, from where you could get to Bärenfallen and Klewenalp. But we go to the right and descend on the mountain path between the rocks to "Marchboden" and "Alp Ahorn". On the small road we return to the monastery village.
