Kloster Einsiedeln - the monastery

It's very famous and the highlight of the town. From the railway station it's about a 10 minutes' walk to the main square.

Jakobsweg - famous pilgrims' path

From Einsiedeln you can hike in a lot of directions. But the monatery lies on the famous Jakobsweg which starts further east and goes all the way to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. There are people doing this long distance hike which takes about 3 months from Switzerland. There quite a few guide books available about the hike.
