Tips and hints

The Swiss Path was founded with a forward-looking vision: it is intended to represent an example of nature conservation, whilst remaining a simple place of encounter. To this day, its main features remain the mountains, the lake and the glorious views. www.weg-der-schweiz.ch

The Swiss Path leads you through the homeland of William Tell. En route, you will spot traces of the past and encounter mythical heroes. You can engage with different images of Switzerland and rediscover the country for yourself.  www.wiegederschweiz.ch
