If I know the internal path of my page (e.g. 'node/1') how do I get the router name?

I need it it to generate an internal url:

$url = Url::fromRoute($router_name);

I found Url::getRouteName, but I'm not sure if this is what I need?

Have a look at PathValidatorInterface::getUrlIfValid() or the version that does not check access. That is provided by the path.validator service:

  • Thanks. That gets me the url object, but when I try to reference $url_object->routhName I get an error: Cannot access protected property Drupal\Core\Url::$routeName.

  • Use the getRouteName() method.

You can also do like this

$route_name = Url::fromUserInput($internal_path)->getRouteName();
