This mountain walk on the Fürstein leads through the wonderful scenery of the UNESCO Biosphere Entlebuch and Obwalden.
Every step up the Fürstein (alt. 2040 m) is a pleasure. From the Stäldeli alp in Flühli the route climbs towards Lake Seewen. The path is in good condition and passes in and out of the unique moorland terrain. Little Lake Seewen with its chapel is a good spot for a brief break. The ascent to Fürstein begins here. The summit offers stunning panoramic views from the Pilatus in the northeast to the Bernese Alps in the southwest. From Fürstein the path leads steeply downwards through sheep pastures and, initially, very rough terrain to Wasserfallenegg. Here you leave the ridge and head towards little Lake Änggenlauenen. From there the path passes through woods and meadows in gently sloping terrain towards your starting point, Stäldeli.
