Einsiedeln Travel Guide: 18 reviews and 50 photos
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.
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.
- Pros:Famous monastery
- Cons:Sometimes very crowded in summer by tourists
- In a nutshell:Well worth a visit
This famous library in rococo style dates back to the founding of the monastery in the 10th century. You can only visit... more travel advice
Behind the monastery starts for example the 2 hours roundtrip hike in the hills from where you can also view Sihlsee... more travel advice
