    Short, crisp ascent from Einsiedeln Hospital to the Katzenstrick.

    Interesting: The Chatzenstrick / Katzenstrick has nothing to do with a cat (Swiss German: Chatz) or with a rope. The first part of the word goes back to a farmer named Kätzi (also written Chätzi) who worked this area. The second part of the word comes from strokes. This is a field name (Old High German Strih = stripe, district, Middle High German dash = land area). The original name was therefore: Chätzi's strokes, which means something like: the country of the Chätzi.The pilgrimage route from Lucerne to the pilgrimage site of Einsiedeln used to lead over the cat rope, which gave it the nickname cat stretcher.
