Map: Wanderkarte Zugerland 1:25000

This protected area lies in a triangle between the rivers Lorze (From Zugersee) and Reuss (from Vierwaldstaettersee).

An interesting way for getting there is certainly by Bicycle which is provided for free.

Choose a route away from the main roads and include "Frauental" and the Monastery (nunnery). The monastery shop there is open weekdays afternoon. The monastery is idyllically situated on an island in the river Lorze.

Passing leisurely the meadows and fields you'll see quite a few pretty hamlets and farms and every now and then the chain of the alps will catch your eye.

Recommended is the route from Mettmenstetten with the impressive panorama of the alpine chain to the left.

Walks along the river Reuss are worthwhile too:

Muehlau - Sins ca. 5 km
Muehlau - Sins (Zollhaus) - Luzern ca. 30 km
Muehlau - Bremgarten ca. 20 km.

Bremgarten, a pretty old small town with a remarkable old wooden bridge is a recommended visit
