Intro

On hot summer days, the sleepy village of Flüelen can feel almost Mediterranean – and when it does, the best thing is to head for the “Lorelei” bathing islands in the Urnersee (Lake Lucerne).

Until the start of the 1980s, things looked bleak for the Reuss Delta in Uri as the shoreline landscape was gradually disappearing into the lake. Thanks to the Reuss Delta Law of 1985, it is now a site of restricted gravel mining, natural habitats and shallow water zones for wildlife and plants as well as tourist use.

Created with 3.3 million tons of rock excavated from the Gotthard Base Tunnel, this small archipelago of islands is one of the major attractions in and around Lake Lucerne. Its large, flat rocks are ideal for sunbathing and relaxing – the biggest block was taken from the Gotthard Base Tunnel and symbolises the origin of the materials used in the project. For the sake of the wildlife and plants of the Reuss Delta, only the Lorelei islands and designated bathing areas may be used.
