Company description and purpose of company Flüeli-Ranft - wo Bruder Klaus lebte

Niklaus von Flüe, also known as "Brother Klaus", lived in the heart of Europe, in the alpine region that is now called "Obwalden". As a farmer, he ran a farm in Flüeli, in the area of ​​the municipality of Sachseln. In 1447 Niklaus married Dorothea Wyss, probably from Stalden. On October 16, 1467, at the age of 50, he left his family. At first he wanted to travel the world as a pilgrim. But before Liestal (Baselland) he turned back, started his way home and hid for a short time on Alp Chlisterli. Finally he moved back down the Melchaa Gorge and from then on lived in Ranft, only ten minutes' walk from the family home. The hermit died on March 21, 1487 and was buried in Sachseln. His bones are now in the parish church, in a silver sarcophagus under the celebration altar. Birthplace of Brother Klaus Birthplace of Niklaus von Flüe (born 1417) in Flüeli. The family name «von Flüe» is derived from the word «Flue», which means rock. The top of the corresponding rock can be seen at the back, on which the Karl Borromeo Chapel was built at the beginning of the 17th century (the Milanese Archbishop Karl Borromeo visited the grave of Brother Klaus in 1570). Below (behind the school house), in the shadow of the rock, a celebration area was built in 1947. Brother Klaus House Around 1446, Niklaus von Flüe thought about getting married and built a house on the Schübelacker for his family. He lived here with Dorothea and his children for twenty years, until he left his family, house and farm, on October 16, 1467, to go out into the world as a pilgrim and in this way to serve God. This is what the kitchen of a farmhouse looked like in the Middle Ages - in the home of Niklaus and Dorothea. The dishes were mostly made of wood. The house was thoroughly restored in the first half of the 20th century and conveys the atmosphere of medieval peasant life. It is open to visitors between Easter and All Saints Day.
