Tour description

Zugerland for culture lovers! Just a few steps from the Rotkreuz rail junction, the Binzmühli pond will surprise you – a nature reserve with old mill. We walk comfortably in idyllic countryside, past beautifully decorated farmhouses, through the cool Lowald wood to the castle ruin of the Lords of Hünenberg (destroyed in 1386 by the Confederates). A pleasant barbecue space offers relaxation and enjoyment. Via the vineyard chapel, past the guest house Wart, the tour continues to the cultural highlight: the late-Gothic St. Wolfgang Church with its famous sacrament chest.

Rotkreuz (by S-train) – Rotkreuz train station – to Binzmühli pond – along the banks of the River Reuss to the railway bridge – Ascent to Meisterswil – through the Lowald wood to the ruined castle – Drälikon – straight ahead then up to the Wart – on to St. Wolfgang – under the motorway – turn right to Rütiwald – Cham train station.
