Flüeli-Ranft was the home of the world-famous Swiss national saint Niklaus von Flue (1417-1487). It is the scene of his birthplace and of the house where he lived when he became the hermit Brother Klaus during the last two decades of his life. The path leads from the village of Flüeli down to the Ranft Gorge, where for over five centuries innumerable people have found peace of mind and body in the upper Ranft Chapel by the roaring waters of the Melchaa. Brother Klaus' grave is located at the Pilgrimage Church in Sachseln.

Flueli-Ranft is located at an altitude of 728 ml, 3 km above Sachseln.
