<<"Thanks for your response, and will look at your links soon. I would likemoderate-level hikes, around 15 km per day. For the hikes you mentioned, are there lodges or guesthouses to overnight in?">>
The hikes that I mentioned are generally too short to ned overnight accomodations. The longer route (Hohtenn to Lalden) passes through villages with inns or small hotels.
Here is an excellent source of information about hikes, with detailed maps, height profiles, places to stay, and things to see, as well as public transport connections.
I have found it necessary to try various place names as search terms; my first choice does not always work. So, I work in combination with a good map, such as the one on the Swiss Mobility web site, or the Swiss Topo site I note below.
Some routes have names- The Via Alpina, for example.
There is a map for all of Switzerland.
Another really good map is at:
map.geo.admin.ch/?topic=swisstopo&X=1900 00.00&Y=660000.00&zoom =1&lang=en&bgLayer=ch. swisstopo.pixelkarte-farbe
If you spend some time with those sites, you will have a lot of information to help you find good hikes for your choice of conditions.
