Walk from station to station on the Morgarten Trail and hear the story told. The Morgarten Trail is a themed trail that allows visitors to visit the original sites of the Battle of Morgarten with the main characters in a radio play. On existing paths between the Sattel parish church and the battle monument in the hamlet of Morgarten on Lake Aegeri, seven animated stations await visitors. Free admission to the information centre. Stories about the battle, causes and consequences and the source situation form the introduction. An exciting multi-vision show on the upper floor deals with the culture of remembrance and the well-researched and documented history of the impact of the Battle of Morgarten. The information centre is in four languages throughout (d, f, i, e).
In the immediate vicinity are the Letzi Tower, the Battle Chapel and the Medieval Schwyz House (the oldest known wooden house in Europe).
This walk starts in the historic “Hohlen Gasse” in Immensee. This is the place where Tell is said to have shot the Habsburg bailiff Gessler. In Friedrich Schiller's "Willhelm Tell", Tell said (IV, 3): "He must come through this hollow alley. There is no other way to Küssnacht." The Hohle Gasse was completely renovated in 2005 and is an experience for young and old. You can read the story again at the information pavilion. After crossing the Hohle Gasse, you reach the Tellerenweg in the direction of the Gessler Castle. A beautiful view over Küssnacht and Lake Lucerne awaits you.
Goldsmiths and silversmiths have been working in the world's oldest goldsmith's house since 1620. A brilliant tradition that is carried on today by the second generation of the Lohri family.

In addition to the elaborate architecture and filigree wall and ceiling paintings, a unique collection of high-quality antique jewellery awaits you here.

There is plenty of material in the past for joy and melancholy, for contentment with themself and for regret.
