Alpine Panorama Trail

After a pleasant ramble alongside the Zugersee lake, you reach the first highlight – the vantage point of Michaelskreuz with restaurant and wedding chapel. Following an undulating stretch you reach Dietschiberg, where you can watch golf at close quarters.
The 10th leg with a hiking time of around 7 hours 45 minutes is the longest of the entire Alpine Panorama Trail. From the Zug train station it first follows the lake promenade to the Choller nature conservation area, a lowland moor of national importance. Only a few minutes later, Villette Park near Cham is the next popular local recreation area. The magnificent park was established in 1865 according to the English style by Theodor Froebel of Zurich. The impressive old tree population is unparalleled far and wide. The villa in the middle of the park was built in 1866 and serves as a cultural and meeting centre with restaurant, banquet, concert and exhibition space.

It takes a total of just under two hours to hike to the Hünenberg open-air swimming area. Civilisation is now gradually giving way to large fields of arable land and pastures until you get to the small village of Buonas. After crossing the motorway and following Meierskappel, the ascent to Michaelskreuz begins. The beautiful place with a chapel and a gigantic old linden tree is also thought to be a place of mystical powers. A little more than half of today’s hike is now behind you. The inn beckons to take a well-deserved break and gather strength for the second half.

The next section leading to Udligenswil and Adligenswil is accompanied by incredible views of Mt. Rigi, Mt. Pilatus and Lake Zug, followed just minutes later by the Capuchine monastery of St. Anna on Gerlisberg above Lucerne. Once you reach the lake, continue along the beautiful Lucerne lake promenade for 45 minutes until you get to the train station. You can also see the Cultural and Congress Centre and the world famous Chapel Bridge along the way. The medieval wooden bridge across the Reuss is a landmark of the city of Lucerne. It was built in the 14th century as part of the town fortifications and was named for nearby St. Peter’s Chapel.
