Since the beginning of the last century this has been the fastest way up to the highest vantage point around Lucerne. And from the B��rgenstock hotel over the rocky Felsenweg path to the valley station on the inside of the rocks, you���re back out in the fresh air after a single minute in the lift. Nights you see the lift illuminated in summer ��� and clearly visible from Lucerne.
Hiking paths lead from Hammetschwand back to the B��rgenstock ��� or you can go via "K��nzeli" back to the Felsenweg path.
Three boat connections from Lucerne take you to Kehrsitten-B��rgenstock in summer; funicular rail from the lake to the B��rgenstock currently out of service; small bus from Stansstad to the B��rgenstock (pre-bookings); Felsenweg path to the valley station of the Hammetschwand lift (only runs in summer)
