Tour description

A varied walk through forests and along rock faces, this tour features unexpectedly beautiful views of the lake and the surrounding mountains. It is also exciting for children because it goes though an impressive and little-known canyon. This is a nice walk even if the weather isn’t that great. Afterwards, the boat ride from Treib back to Beckenried is very relaxing.


Option A: From Rütenen to Niederholz, down into the Risleten gorge and then up and out the other side.
Option B: After Stäckenmatt over Aebnet and Schwandli to Seelisberg. From here there’s a bus to Beckenried.

The Treib-Seelisberg train line offers connections for both options, so you can adjust the tour to suit your own needs and timeframe.
