Hiking on the Border of Two Cantons

It was a very spontaneous hiking tour this Sunday afternoon: a hike up to the Wildspitz mountain and the border between the Canton Schwyz and Zug. Full of beautiful views, flowers and awesome butterflies!

The boarder between the Canton of Schwyz and Canton of Zug is marked with several stones. Below stone No. 18 (dated 1907) near at Langmatt:

The route is shown below, with the start at “Obhäg Kapelle”, then up to the “Waldhütte” and “Wildspitz”, following the border towards “Dufour Museam” and then going down to the “Kanzleihütte” and around the “Blindsee” back to the “Obhhäg Kapelle”:
