Public scenic tour in Schwyz: "On the road with ..."


Important: We offer the scenic tour only in Swiss German

The scenic tour "On the way with ..." is a mixture of theatre and guided tour of the village. You take a walk through the centre of the village of Schwyz and are accompanied by the "Maid Lisi" or the "Mercenary Tschännel", who convey historically documented content in a scenic way.

The main town of SchwyzSchwyz is a proud place with a rich past and culture. Swiss history was written here, which can still be seen today in the well-preserved town centre. It is characterised by stately patrician houses, the baroque main square with the town hall and the imposing parish church as well as numerous picturesque old alleys. On an hour-long scenic guided tour of the village, you will immerse yourself in life in the 17th century and gain a completely new perspective of the village.

On the road with mercenary Tschännel

"Söldner Tschännel" is a historical figure who, although fictional, may have lived in Schwyz. Hans Gwerder, called "Tschännel", signed on as a rice runner at random with all kinds of princes and lords and thus took part in several minor wars in Spain, France and Italy. He also did a little petty trading on the side. He certainly didn't get rich doing it, but he did experience the most amazing stories. He wants to sweeten his old age with one last trade. He will be happy to tell you about this and many of his experiences as a mercenary during the guided tour.

On the road with maid Lisi

"Magd Lisiˮ is a historical figure who, although fictional, could have lived in Schwyz. Elisabeth Maria Camenzind, called "Lisi", works as a maid for the Reding family. She receives only a modest wage and room and board. Her busy days begin before sunrise and end late after sunset. "Lisi" is an outgoing, chatty woman and is often out and about in the village, which is why she knows a lot about everyone. In addition, "Lisi" experienced the Schwyz village fire as a child. On the guided tour, you will therefore enjoy many exciting stories.
