Sights

Kloster Einsiedeln (Einsiedeln Abbey)

The E1 leads from the shore of the Sihl lake up to Einsiedeln. Shortly before the end of the stage we can see the village and the monastery from a small hill. This Benedictine abbey is an important pilgrimage station on the Swiss St. James' Way. It houses a "Black Madonna", an attraction for pilgrims and tourists. 

The abbey also offers pilgrims an overnight accommodation.
