Brunnen is situated on the shores of Lake Lucerne with views of the Urnersee to the east, and across to the Bürgenstock and Gotthard Massif.
The Grimsel Pass links the Hasli Valley in the Bernese Oberland with Goms in Valais. The pass road runs through a wild, sparsely grown mountainous region marked by granite rocks, reservoir lakes, and power plants.
