Ruedi Rymann became Giswil's most famous son through his work. The Schacherseppli trail was created to honour him and his famous hit "Dr Schacherseppli". It presents the work of Ruedi Rymann amidst wonderful natural surroundings.

The trail begins at Giswil station, where a tall wooden Schacherseppli figure marks the starting point. Special signposts lead to Bahnhofweg, where the first post is located at the old railway station stables.

In addition to the 10 km circular walk, a shorter trail 4 km trail is dedicated to the song "Dr Schacherseppli". This is marked in blue and branches off at the bridge over the Laui. It is suitable for strollers and wheelchairs. Take care: the bridge over the Laui is only 80 cm wide.
