Stage description

The E1 follows Route 4 (Via Jacobi / Schwabenweg) for the entire stage. Before the European long-distance hiking trail was completely transferred to this Wanderland route, the stage led on a high-level trail east around the Sihl lake and crossed it on a bridge in the direction of Einsiedeln (marked blue on the map). Those who are not afraid of a few extra kilometres should definitely follow this somewhat longer, original E1 route. You will be rewarded with a great view (e.g. from Stöcklichrüz) of past landscapes in the direction of Lake Zurich and Hörnli and of the more alpine terrain ahead.

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.
