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.
Restaurant Alpgschwänd stands for homely comfort and good home Niedwaldner cooking for healthy appetites! Views over the lake and mountains are equally as pleasing - if not stunning! Owing to its central location in reference to Pilatus, Alp Gschwänd also represents the start and finish of numerous attractive excursions, and fantastic panorama views are already yours to enjoy on the journey here.
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.
