Lake Wichel is located in a popular recreational area with a beautiful landscape. In particular, the forest-trimmed cliffs behind the lake are a worthwhile photo subject.
This bicycle tour starts in the town of Sarnen. Its numerous sights bear witness to a lively history. Stately homes and small businesses form the heart of the Flecken neighborhood. Near the attractive village center stands Sarnen’s beautiful old town hall. In fact, it’s been representing the whole canton of Obwalden for nearly 600 years.
If you follow Sarnen’s portion of the Aa River, you’ll find the nature conservation area at Lake Wichel. Here you can observe a variety of waterfowl. You can also see the little Dunschtig Chapel, which has room for about 20 people. It was built after the big cattle plague of 1779. As you continue toward Alpnach you’ll pass the airport – you can’t miss it. On hot summer days you can cool off at the beach at Lake Alpnach before heading back to Sarnen.
