VIA JACOBI:

Siebnen to Pfäffikon

26th June 2020


We returned to Siebnen to see what we missed, and take a different route through Lachen to Pfäffikon. Near Pfäffikon, we joined the route we'd taken before from Rapperswil, thus completing the loop.

This signpost marks the point where the two ways converge.


We took the train to Siebnen, where we asked at the parish office next to the Herz-Jesu church (which we had already visited) for the key to the St.Niklaus Kapelle.
This is well worth while, as you can see from the pictures!
The Reformed church in Siebnen is usually locked, but we got to look in as it was being prepared for a wedding.
Then we walked on to the St. Jost Kapelle in Galgenen, which we had missed the last time due to a detour around roadworks in Galganen. On the old pilgrim way from Reichenburg to Lachen, it has spectacular Frescos from Bruder Klaus and a winged altar. (They say a pilgrim stamp is available at th house opposite, but no one answered our ring.)
From Galgenen we took a post bus directly to Lachen church in the town centre, and then walked to the Kapelle im Ried on the edge of Lachen. Lachen used to be a busy port in the old days, and pilgrims would arrive there to continue on to Einsiedeln.
Finally, we walked along the lakeside to join up with the way from Rapperswil, and then on to Pfäffikon, where we took the train home.
