This walk starts at the historic Hohle Gasse in Immensee. At this place where Tell is said to have shot the Habsburg bailiff Gessler. In Friedrich Schiller's book "Willhelm Tell" Tell (IV, 3) said: "He must come through this hollow alley. There is no other way to Küssnacht."

Hohle Gasse was completely renovated in 2005 and is an exciting experience for young and old. Now you can read the story again at the interactive information pavilion. After crossing the Hohle Gasse you will take the Tellerenweg in the direction of Gesslerburg. A beautiful view over Küssnacht and Lake Lucerne awaits you. You can also visit the historic Knochenstampfe at the Gesslerburg. Numerous barbecue sites invite you for a cosy picnic. The path continues toward the village centre of Küssnacht, from where you can go on your further journey by bus or boat.
