Lake Hallwil

Enjoy a cruise on the idyllic Lake Hallwil, with coffee and cake or a glass of fine wine. Our offer includes extra cruises for every budget, scheduled cruises, special cruises, and all kinds of theme-based cruises.

The idyllic hilly countryside around the lake, the medieval castle of Hallwyl with its heritage exhibitions, and the romantic boat trips round the lake make Lake Hallwil and the nearby Seetal valley a small but popular tourist area.

Lake Ägeri

Lake Ägeri is nestled in a hilly moraine landscape and offers a wide range of hiking, mountain biking and water sports activities. Its shores were the site of the famous Battle of Morgarten in 1315, the first battle between the Confederates and the Habsburgs.

Gelmerbahn – steeply up to the Gelmersee lake

The Gelmer cable car with its 106% gradient is Europe's steepest cable car. The ride in the open carriages takes one up to Lake Gelmer, which is situated at an altitude of 1,860 meters above sea level. The region where the reservoir is located is the starting point for hikes and mountain tours.

Those in seek of a thrilling ride find one here! A monstrous climb of maximum 106 percent undisputably makes this funicular railway the steepest in Europe.

Hammetschwand lift and Felsenweg path

It created an absolute sensation when the hotel and railroad pioneer Franz-Josef Bucher-Durrer built the Hammetschwand lift at the Bürgenberg in 1905.

The 152.8 meter-high lift to the Bürgenstock looks like a heaven-bound rocket.
