At the old sawmill

The “Säge” in Giswil is one of history’s great survivors. Made entirely of wood, Switzerland’s only water-powered sawmill exudes nostalgia and the romanticism of an age-old craft. You will be amazed at how little water is needed to start the giant wheel turning. And the souvenir piece of wood you get to saw will serve as a permanent reminder of your visit to the “Säge”.

Central Switzerland is blessed with myriad vantage points. Among the plethora of mountains there are some, which on account of their breathtaking panoramic views, must be counted among the top 10 peaks. The Stanserhorn Mountain is in this league. Ten lakes and some 100 kilometers of the Alpine chain are all part of the panorama awaiting you on the Stanserhorn.
