Distance 9.4 km
This round walk starts at the Adlermättli information panel in front of Einsiedeln monastery, leads through the old stables and up to the statue of St. Benedict with its delightful views of the monastery grounds. You then head gently upwards towards "Birchli". The view on the saddle opens on both sides, over the village and over Lake Sihl with the Alps in the background. Here a short excursion to the Vogelherd vantage point is worthwhile. The path now leads down to left of the lake until shortly before the Hüendermatt dam. You then follow the lake past the Segelplatz marina to the Roblosen lido, then left towards Hirzenstein. You return via the woodland path - Galgenchappeli - Alte Etzelstrasse - Horgenberg to the monastery.
