Nestled between the Rigi and the Grosser and Kleiner Mythen mountains in the canton of Schwyz lies Lake Lauerz and its pleasure island of Schwanau that is about 200m long.
The ferry, Gemma von Arth, takes passengers from the shores of Lake Lauerz to the island of Schwanau. Visitors can explore this oasis of peace and pleasure on a small walk. Those wishing to learn a little more about the island can book a historical guided tour to discover fascinating facts and tales about Schwanau.
Schwanau is not only popular for its beauty and tranquillity, but also for the eponymous Restaurant Schwanau. Here, regional specialities are in part enriched with exotic spices and eagerly devoured by guests.
