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

Questions and answers

Question from Lorenza Torti · June 20, 2022 · Community
Good morning, my friend and I will be in Zurich from 24th to 28th June and we would like to do a daily trekking excursion to Interkaken or to the canton of Svitto, with a hiking guide and perhaps with a pre-formed group. It would be possible? Do you have any excursions already planned for these days? If possible we would like to avoid cable cars and trains, just walk. We are Italian, if the guide spoke English it would be fine. How much would it cost? I am looking forward to hearing from you, Best regards Lorenza Torti
