Rütli Meadow

It's called the Cradle of Switzerland – the Rütli Meadow near Seelisberg overlooking Lake Uri. This is the historic landmark where representatives of Switzerland's three founding cantons (Schwyz, Uri and Unterwalden) met in 1291 to swear an oath of eternal alliance. The Rütli Meadow comes into view on the left (in the direction of travel).
