Chutzen Trail

Over Chutzen Hill to the Frienisberg Abbey

Take a day trip to explore the beautiful Frienisberg region. The Chutzen Trail takes you over Chutzen Hill to the Frienisberg Abbey. Enjoy the exceptional mountain views from Chutzen Tower. 

The Chutzen Trail takes you from Wahlendorf through the Frienisberg forest to Seedorf. About half way there you come across Chutzenturm, a 45-meter tower with fantastic panoramic views of the Swiss countryside. The trail is well built and partly suitable for strollers. From Chutzen Tower the path continues down to Elemoos and continues to the former Frienisberg Abbey. Refreshments and places to relax are available on the way, for example at Restaurant Rössli in Wahlendorf or at Restaurant Hirschen near the Frienisberg Abbey, or if you prefer to picnic or grill a sausage, stop at Chutzen Tower or at Chutzen Hut.
