Fodor's Review

This is an exhilarating and spectacular, but very safe, climb up through a gorge beside a raging torrent from the village of Stans, to the northeast of Hall, to the Benedictine monastery of St. Georgenberg. The climb, on walkways hewn from the mountainside and across bridges spanning the tumbling river and beside waterfalls—all protected by railings—takes about 90 minutes and features 354 steps. At the top the monastery's sumptuously decorated Baroque church, precariously perched on a rocky peak, is worth a few minutes of your time. There is a decent restaurant there, too, with a terrace dizzily located above a sheer drop of several hundred feet.
