Hike Bürgenstock

A hike to the Bürgenstock (NW) with great views

The hike goes from Ennetbürgen to Hammetschwand at the Bürgenstock and back to Stansstad.

The Bürgenstock is a highly attractive mountain. This hike starts at the Postplatz in Ennetbürgen and continues on to Schiffländi on a pleasant hiking trail. A first break is suggested at the chapel of St. Jost from where a fabulous view can be enjoyed. From this point onwards, the path is quite steep. The last section of the trail is hewn into the rock in an impressive manner. A breathtaking view rewards the hikers on this last part up to the Bürgenstock. From Bürgenstock you can return to Stansstad by postbus.
