Starting from the station of Giswil climb the partially steep road for approximately 1000 m and reach the geographical centre of Switzerland, the Aelggi. After a refreshment at the mountain restaurant bike on beautiful natural paths in direction to the Seefeld of Sachseln. After a pleasant single-trail descent you can decide depending on the physical form whether path to choose. The easier one goes through the Melchtal to Kaiserstuhl (option A). The other option would be biking and walking down to Hüttstett. After a long and beautiful descent you reach Lungern, the highest village of the valley of Sarnen. Who is still sporting follows the road to Dundelegg (Lungern Schönbüel). Arriving on top of Dundelegg, enjoy the most beautiful view of the valley of Sarnen. After approximately 2 km of descent you arrive at the alp restaurant Fluonalp, where you can get refreshments.
Place of interest:
Centre of Switzerland
The winner of the award ‘Swiss of the year’ effectively stays at the centre of Switzerland. He’ll be honoured for his merits and his name carved out of stone. The geographical centre is on the alp of Aelggi above Sachseln. An impressive and idyllic landscape amidst the scenery of mountains and prealps of Obwalden.
Option A: The trip can be interrupted in two places. After the Seefeld of Lungern, before the climb to Chrummelbach, the path in direction down the valley can be chosen. You will arrive directly at Kaiserstuhl.
Option B: Before the last climb along the Lungerersee in direction of Kaiserstuhl de trip can be shortened.
