Hiking Views: The ‘Tell Trail’ In Switzerland (4K)

The new long-distance path Tell-Trail wends its way across the scenic Lucerne-Lake Lucerne region – from Altdorf up to the Brienzer Rothorn. In eight stages, the trail passes by glittering mountain lakes, through historic villages and world-renowned towns, and takes in the “Big 6” mountains of central Switzerland: Fronalpstock (Stoos), Rigi, Pilatus, Stanserhorn, Titlis and Brienzer Rothorn. The varied flora and fauna and the spectacular mountain landscape are constant features of the itinerary. Stage 5, from Stans to Engelberg, is particularly impressive.

If the good William Tell had had more time, he would have chosen this route through Central Switzerland. The Tell Trail leads you on spectacular high-altitude paths, into small side valleys and along dreamy rippling rivers. You will discover the most famous vantage points and the most beautiful places in Central Switzerland.

You hike in a wide arc from the Tell monument in Altdorf to the Muotathal, storm Stoos, Rigi and Mount Pilatus and finish the tour after a visit to Engelberg and Melchsee-Frutt on the Brienzer Rothorn. The hikes are demanding and the views are dazzling: If it weren’t for the landvogt Gessler, Wilhelm and Walter would have loved to take on this tour.
