Tour description

The path that unites Switzerland
To mark the 700th anniversary of Switzerland, a 35-km long home-themed hiking trail was created around the southernmost part of Lake Lucerne. If divided by canton, every Swiss citizen has a 5-millimetre share of the path.

The Swiss Path goes from the Rütli via Flüelen around Lake Uri to Brunnen. The varied, attractive route passes through both the steep mountainsides and the flat shore zones of Lake Uri. It crosses over steps hewn out of rocks before returning to wide, easy trails and passing many places to rest and swim.

From Seelisberg to the Reuss Delta
Past the viewing terraces of Marienhöhe and Waldweidli on historic trails to Beroldingen, Bauen and Isleten. Along the lake to the Reuss Delta, where the artificial bathing islands are the perfect place to relax and swim.

Over lake shore trails and Axenstrasse
Along Lake Uri and via the Axenstrasse attraction built in 1860 to the Tellsplatte, Tell's Chapel and to Sisikon. Ascent to Morschach with a unique panoramic view before descending to Brunnen.


Variante A: It is possible to walk in different stages.


Route number 99 is always signposted. As regional route of the SwitzerlandMobility network, it is signposted throughout and in both directions.
