To an old place of power


A pleasant autumn hike in the surrounding of Lucerne.

Starting at Adligenswil and passing traditional farmhouses, after an hour we will reach the next village Udligeswil. On the meadow, the traditional standard apple and pear trees still stand. During the current harvest time we may pick one or two before they are turned into sweet juice.

At the Michael’s cross, a place of power, we go fifteen centuries back in time. The legend tells us that the archangel Michael appeared to a hermite, guided him to the sacred place and told him to erect a cross. A comfortable path leads us easily down to Rotkreuz.

Take some small change with you for a little shopping at the farmhouses on the route.
