Description of 2 trips, presented in dialogue form between a pair of travelers designated Theseus and Phirithous, with the beginning of a third trip, although 4 are promised in the title (quatuor tramites, f. 1r). In the first trip, they set out from Switzerland and travel to Freiburg in the Breisgau (Brigovia) region of Germany by way of Hüningen; in the second, they leave Switzerland again to travel in the Swabia (Suevia) region of southern Germany; the third trip is described as a trip to Austria, although it starts with a return to Suevia. The travelers discuss cities, monasteries (Benedictine, Cistercian, and Carthusian), and local history.
