The great post-card panorama can possibly imagine: The backdrop of the foothills of the Alps faded in the morning mist. Bounded on the North little spectacular the Albis chain of the horizon. Further down, on the bottom of the valley, flows the river Reuss leisurely of the Aare river, while up here, at the foot of Lindenberg, merrily rippling the value of the restored gully the trail. The 180 Kilometer measures long free ämterweg on many routes in the South-Eastern corner of the Canton, is known for rivers and streams – and for traffic jams, and cooling towers. The Freiamt is the highway - and nuclear-free Zone in the Aargau. It is located where the Bünz flows to Bünzen. She comes from Muri, the place that sees itself as a cultural center and where already at the station, the first decision is due.
we Go up to the monastery? The thousand year old Benedictine Monasterium once stood in the center of the clergy of Central Europe; long ago, the monks have moved out, but the monastery of Muri today, the cultural Events in the Region. Recently opened behind its thick walls, the Caspar-Wolf Museum. The landscapes, the of free offices art painter, until today, the most famous citizen of Muri, in front of more than 200 years, immortalized in Oil on canvas, listed him the reputation as one of the most important representatives of the Swiss romantic.
