just returned from my first stage of the Swiss Camino; Constance (or Konstanz) to Einsiedeln (4 days).
I highly recommend this route, and there are now various albergues available. The signs are very easy to find, though they are about to change the whole signs in Switzerland this year, with new signs just showing a number 4!

Hi Manosge,

Check http://www.jakobsweg.ch, there is a good section in English with description of the way, small map, and a very comprehensive accommodation list.
I didn't use any other guide when I walked the route from Konstanz to Einsiedeln, and I won't get another one for the way to Geneva this summer. Signs along the way are really good.

Alternatively, please also check out this website - http://www.wanderland.ch/en/routen_detail.cfm?id=315939.

Accommodation isn't that expensive, there are now a few albergues available, for example a really nice one in Rapperswil.

I hope you enjoy the camino in Switzerland!

Rolf
