Chärwald Robber – Kernwald Adventure Trail

The adventure trail takes you on a journey through the wonderful Kernwald – the legendary forest which forms the border between the two half-cantons of Obwalden and Nidwalden.

Along the trail you encounter the Chärwald Robber, who tells you his own story. Information boards explain the history and customs of the old days.

The adventure trail is a real highlight for the children: each stopping-off place has a task for the little ones, such as finding a treasure, building towers or throwing fir cones. That way, they can really let off steam and enjoy being outdoors.

Trail description

The trail starts at Chabisstein, near the Paradiesli animal shelter on Kernserstrasse between Ennetmoos and Kerns. It then takes you to Lake Gerzen along waymarked paths.
