The Fruit educational trail in Kehrsiten leads past 26 traditional fruit varieties and is freely accessible from March to October. Some of these are ProSpecieRara varieties. These are therefore site-specific crops that are threatened with extinction. The trees are cultivated by Christoph Ulrich and Luzia Zwyssig from the organic farm Hobiel.


The Fruit educational trail is directly on the hiking trail from the Kehrsiten-Dorf boat station to Bürgenstock. It starts at Seehotel Baumgarten and leads along the Schwandstrasse up to Schwand. The path is freely accessible at all times, guided tours on request.

How did it all start?

Robi Zwyssig and the Kurverein Kehrsiten had the idea of the fruit educational trail. In 2014 a team went to work. The fruit varieties were documented and photographed. This resulted in a lovingly drawn map. On the back of the folding map there are pictures and descriptions of the different types of fruit. The fruit tree trail has been open to visitors since summer 2015. The tree boards were sponsored by the Kurverein Kehrsiten.
