Destination

Ennetbürgen

Turn-by-turn directions

The trail leads along a forest road from Stans (Eichli sports facility) to Oberstöckmatt. On hot summer days, the ride through a forest is particularly pleasant. At Oberstöckmatt it is worth taking a photo break. The open view of Mount Pilatus, the Stanserhorn and towards Obwaldnerland is tremendous.

After that it becomes flatter and you pass the Obbürgen plateau until you reach the farm at Etschenried. There you have a wonderful panorama over the other side of Lake Lucerne, all the way to the Engelberg Valley.

Continue across meadows and past farms to the spacious Honegg fireplace. There are a few fence crossings on this section of the trail (please close the gates).

From here it takes about 40 minutes on foot to reach the famous Bürgenstock, with breathtaking views as far as Lucerne and the Mittelland.

Then continue on the road down to Ennetbürgen. Here you can take a detour to the St. Jost Chapel, also with a magnificent view over the lake and mountains.
