The Apple Fritter Trail combines learning with a fabulous landscape and therefore offers a great experience on Männlichen. The Fruit Nature Trail leads across lush meadows, flower-filled fields and secluded woods from Holenstein to Brandegg. At the 6 information boards along the way you can test and improve your knowledge of fruit. For example: did you know that the Swiss eat an average of about 20 kilograms of apples per person per year? On your way through the splendid scenery you'll naturally be walking towards the imposing backdrop of the Eiger, Schreckhorn and Wetterhorn mountains. The crowning, scrumptious conclusion to the Apple Fritter Trail though, awaits you at the Brandegg restaurant. This is where some of the world's best apple fritters are made. What could be nicer than to rest your weary legs on the sun terrace and succumb to sweet temptation?
