Intro

The 152.8 meter-high lift to the Bürgenstock looks like a heaven-bound rocket. And views from Hammetschwand over Lucerne and its lake are best described as heavenly!

Warning! Before you make the trip, check if the Felsenweg and the Hammetschwand Lift are open. Find more information here.

Since the beginning of the last century this has been the fastest way up to the highest vantage point around Lucerne. And from the Bürgenstock 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 Bürgenstock – or you can go via "Känzeli" back to the Felsenweg path.

Altitude: 1128m
Accessibility:
Three boat connections from Lucerne take you to Kehrsiten-Bürgenstock in summer; funicular rail from the lake to the Bürgenstock; small bus from Stansstad to the Bürgenstock (pre-bookings); Felsenweg path to the valley station of the Hammetschwand lift (only runs in summer)
View: Over the Lake Lucerne "Kreuztrichter", Rigi, Mythen, Buochserhorn, Stanserhorn, Pilatus and Brünig Pass and Bernese Alps in the background
Attractions: The scenic Felsenweg path offers in-depth views over the lake across to the extraordinary lift
Culinary aspects: Restaurant & Pension Taverne 1879
Overnight stays: Restaurant & Pension Taverne 1879: 12 double rooms
Winter: Felsenweg path, Hammetschwand lift and the Hammetschwand mountain restaurant are not in operation during winter
