    The twelfth stage takes you from Wattenwil to Schwarzenburg and offers not only a lot of nature but also cultural highlights. Via winding paths you ascend to the Burgistein Castle. From afar you can see the turrets and high roofs of the complex. A shady avenue brings you to the 15th century castle, from which you have a great view.You hike to Rüeggisberg through the intact alpine landscape with its tranquil places. There stands the mystical ruins of the former monastery Rüeggisberg, which was one of the most important of its kind in the Middle Ages. Stride through the meter-high arches and let the atmosphere affect you.After a good 14 kilometers you cross the river Schwarzwasser and can stop there in the rustic restaurant Lamm. On quiet paths you reach your destination today Schwarzenburg. The village is nestled in the hill of the Gantritsch region and the castle of the same name is worth a visit.
