Border Triangles

I have always been fascinated by border triangles. About here is the one where the cantons of Zug, Schwyz and Lucerne are meeting. As a non-resident of Immensee, a village of about 2.000 inhabitants it is hardly to imagine for me, how they cope with three legislations. If I remember it right, the Firering is…

Technology and Customer Service

This route led me over the hills along the river of Root. From Mount Rigi they are looking like a crocodile. It was snowing in the morning, so I tried this easier way.  Up the first hill via Utenberg to Dietschiberg was surprisingly quite steep and muddy, so I had to crawl the last part on…



Another surprisingly beautiful route from the Lake of Zurich to the Lake of Zug. The part along the Sihl, marking the border between the two cantons is amazing. It feels a bit like in an adventure game, Sometimes you cross dark tunnels through rocks, then you run under waterfalls, to walk along some gorges at…

People were refusing to produce and eat what their authorities wanted and tricked them out with their geographical knowledge of the region. Today there are…

Glasi Hergiswil

Lake of Zug

Higher Grounds

Höhronen is doubtlessly the best area in the area of Zurich to train elevations. There are five difficulty levels. The way up to Hütten is quite easy along some fields and the street. From there up to Gottschalkenberg is the steepest part of the route leading crosscountry through a forrest. Further up to Höhronen is…

Schwyz, Hauptplatz, Brunnen

Gender and Jesus

Here another amazing route of central Switzerland. Starting in Wädenswil you follow the easy elevation uphill direction Samstagern. The way up to Hütten is a bit steeper. The segment up to Gottschalkenberg is the most difficult part of the route. On the top you take the way direction Ratenpass. There you find a small and…
