The sunny terrace above the Urnersee lake is both a holiday resort and starting point for beautiful hikes over fields and mountain forests. Observing nature is a popular passtime here, along with lengthy hikes over the Rophaien wild hay-making trail, or the Schächentaler highland path direction Klausen Pass.

Paragliders profit from valley winds and mountain-bikers revel in getting underway direction Hüenderegg. From Flüelen a cableway runs to the Eggberge, arriving in solely nine minutes.
