Älggialp in Canton Obwalden is the geographical centre of Switzerland, which underscores how centrally located and well connected the canton is. One of Switzerland’s founding cantons, Obwalden is noted for the diversity of its scenery. In the valley, Lakes Sarnen and Lungern sparkle amid mountains and forests. Well-known tourism destinations in the region include Engelberg-Titlis, Melchsee-Frutt and the Pilatus. Pilgrims tread the Way of St. James to Flüeli-Ranft, birthplace of the holy Brother Klaus.
