  • Goethe was in the Switzerland, the William tell legend heard, and after his return after Germany his younger friend of the poet Schiller by this heroic legends told and encouraged him to dramatize this topic. And Schiller has done it, creating a (European) world-wide success, and at the same time laid the Foundation for the Swiss national pride. Where would the Switzerland without the seal of this legend. The column with statue in old village can be experienced this heroic claim. When you stand before that as non-Swiss, comes about one not great respect for this fictitious heroes, but looking at a place in the round about the restaurants or visit the fairly peaceful Altdorf (not too long, you can quickly migrate the sympathetic town).

  • I thought it would be fun to stop in Altdorf because of the William Tell legacy but there wasn't much to do in the village and it wasn't very scenic either. 
  • For a freedom fighter, it should be the managed almost single-handedly to hunt the Habsburgs from the country, our Willhelm do a somewhat pitiful Eindruck...wie now stop all monuments of the world. The tell story to hear / read is definitely more fascinating than a visit to its bronze embodiment.
