The William Tell Path
Ascent / Descent: 503m / 503m
Duration: 2hr 55min

This beautiful one way hike can be reached in many ways. We chose to park in Bauen, take the ferry to the starting point and walk back to the car but with limited parking, it may be wiser to start in Brunnen, taking the ferry both ways.
The walk starts where William Tell conspired with others to take down the Habsburgs by signing the Rütli Oath - although this may be more of a fable than reality!
After starting at the Rütli meadow, it’s uphill through the forest into Seelisberg. We stopped for a nice lunch at Träumli before contining in the rain downhill to Bauen.
