Tour description

Get away from it all! You can get away from the hectic town centre by bus and funicular, and be in pure countryside in under 30 minutes! The Zugerberg is the perfect recreation area in Zugerland. This hike takes you through the wonderful high moorland of the Zugerberg and offers unique panoramic views as far as the Bernese Alps.

Zugerberg top station – direction Walchwil – Altenboden – chellenweid – over Ober-Horbach to the Schnuristein – continue at the same height to Lienisberg and Tossetschwändi – turn right down over Schwändeli to Gibel – sharp ascent to Freudenberg – walk along the road to Walchwil railway station (altitude difference 544 metres downhill)

Places of interest:

- Restaurant Zugerberg
- Adventure Playground Schattwäldli


There is only Restaurant Zugerberg at the start of the hike and then none directly on the route until Walchwil.
