Holidaying in Sörenberg means experiencing pure nature - and sharing in this wonderful plant and animal world. Nowhere else in Switzerland is there so much naturally protected moorland in such a small area as here. The moor landscape is characterised by the great contrast between the smooth, rounded surface contours of the moor and the rugged Schrattenfluh.
Sörenberg and the 8 km distant climatic health resort of Flühli form a strong family-oriented vacation destination. In addition to several small hotels, Sörenberg has a particularly wide range of holiday apartments and group accommodation. Close to Flühli you may also be surprised to find a restored Art Nouveau hotel.
The people in the Alpine valleys have complied with and acted upon the laws of nature for centuries. An important offer in the Entlebuch biosphere are thus guided hikes on topics related to the nature of the environment: karst walks over the Schrattenfluh, cave visits, wildlife observation by Brienz Rothorn, spotting the golden eagle, medicinal herbs and poisonous plants, and interesting facts about the moorland along with legends are the themes of some of these guided hikes.
From Sörenberg a cable car runs you up to the Brienz Rothorn, a popular starting point for wonderful mountain hikes. Here you also come across the steam train that takes you to further heights in summer. Below the Rothorn summit lies the Eisee lake - a beautifully deep blue mountain lake and paradise for anglers, nature lovers and hikers alike.
The place to combine wellness with purest nature amid a moorland landscape is at the idyllic Schwandalpweiher Kneipp facility by Fühli. An adrenalin kick for the adventurous is guaranteed by the high ropes course - and bikers get their fill on an interesting network of routes. Golfers also have the opportunity to indulge in their hobby and alphorn courses; cheese making, gold panning, Native American fun days etc. are further offers in this unique realm.
With 17 chairlifts and ski lifts and cable cars spread over 53 km of slopes, Sörenberg is the largest ski area in the canton of Lucerne. Skiing and snowboarding up to 2350m is enjoyed on the Brienzer Rothorn, the highest mountain in the canton - and this family-friendly ski region also offers a snow sports school, two toboggan runs, three marked snowshoe trails and guided snowshoe tours. Not forgetting the Schrattenfluh ski touring region that those in the know rave about!
