Directions
We leave Hergiswil train station and turn right into Mühlestrasse and then left into Renggstrasse. The road winds up until Lägebrugg and past the valley station of the Alpgschwänd cable car. From here a 4 km nature trail leads up to the highest point of the tour, Fräkmüntegg, and then goes down to Mühlemäss. On an asphalt road we descend to Kriens, passing the valley station of the Kriens-Fräkmüntegg cable car. On the onward journey we pass numerous neighbourhoods and football grounds. In Horw, the path runs partly parallel to the motorway towards Hergiswil. The last section of the tour is on the signalised cycle routes No. 3 and 9. We enjoy the view of Lake Lucerne and the surrounding mountains. On the Seestrasse we turn right at the "Glasi Pub" into Bahnhofstrasse and are back at Hergiswil train station.
Author’s advice
The tour is rideable in both directions. If you want to simplify the tour technically, go up via Kriens and down again. The section on the Hergiswil side is in the upper part on gravel and relatively steep. The section on the Kriens side is mostly asphalted.
