Like an enormous wedge, the Lopper mountain chain separates the main basin of Lake Lucerne from Alpnachersee. Before the road and railway were cut into the vertical rock walls, Rengpass was the only link between Lucerne and Obwalden. Today, the pass has become one of the most popular bike loops of central Switzerland.
The Hergiswil Glassworks have been located at Lake Lucerne since 1817. At that time, the Glassworks were a production site with ideal transportation routes for wood fuel and goods. The tradition of craftsmanship continues to live on within the framework of modern design. The exhibition recounts the history of glass and the Hergiswil Glassworks. Visitors can observe the glassblowers working at the furnace.
Do you know exactly where the very middle of Switzerland is? Near to a pretty little alp in the Kleine Melchtal, Obwalden canton.
