The heartland of Switzerland, where once upon a time the legendary Rütli Oath marked the beginning of the Swiss Confederation, nowadays mainly excursionists longing for pristine nature are gamboling and enjoying the scenery. In contrast to the Swiss inhabitants of those dearly days, today's visitors have an eye for the esthetics of this picturesque landscape. Here the deep-blue Lake Lucerne, the two Mythen mountains and the Rigi massif bid you welcome.
Mt. Pilatus - landmark mountain of Lucerne, the city of lights - is very popular with hikers and with excursionists in general. Its North Face is home to Krienseregg, a popular recreational area, and Alp Fräkmünt, a great vantage point.
The pre-Alpine character of the Greyerz region lends itself to magnificent bike tours, the loop from Charmey to the vantage point of La Berra and back is excellent proof.
