Holzbrücke Seedamm-Weg

This route starts in Pfäffikon SZ and leads along the bank of the Seedamm (lake dam) to Rapperswil SG. The section is marked by wonderful far-reaching views over an endless plain with flower-filled fields and meadows as well as the glistening Zurichsee (lake). The ultimate holiday feeling!
The first section leads mostly along wide gravel paths through tranquil countryside, which will make any nature lover's heart jump for joy. To Hurden you travel along with views of flat open fields and meadows stretching out as far as the shores of the Zürichsee (lake). The sparkling lake complements the fascinating panorama from the very start.

Hurden offers the chance to take a break at a large, attractively landscaped rest area. You then follow the lake shore dam along small, pretty walkways passing splendid reed beds. From Hurden to Rapperswil SG you enjoy the exceptional views from an impressive wooden walkway, which is beautifully embedded in the landscape.

The walkway ends at Rapperswil SG in a superb park, which leads into the town. Idyllic Rapperswil SG offers the perfect lakeside location for a delightful end to the day, resting, relaxing and watching the ships and comings and goings on the water.
