Details

Let`s meet for a beautiful photo walk from Mariastein to the Landskron Castle.

We will meet at the bus station at Klosterplatz in Mariastein 1.30 pm. From there it`s a few steps to the Mariastein Abbey - it is the second most important place of pilgrimage in Switzerland afer Einsiedeln. We will have a look at the church and afterwards we walk to the Landskron Castle (approx 2.5 km). The view from the top of the castle is fantastic. On the way back to Mariastein we stop at a Restaurant for a drink.

See you!
