Hint

Intro

«Stunning» must be the most apt description for this route. Located at the heart of Central Switzerland, high above the picturesque Vierwaldstättersee (Lake Lucerne) and with the best views of the Alpine peaks, the Bürgenstock leaves nothing to be desired.

Description

The tour starts and finishes at the top station of the Bürgenstock funicular. From here you can already catch an extensive view of the «Chrüztrichter», the actual heart of Lake Lucerne. On reaching the Bürgenstock, the first thing you notice are the splendid, extensive views over the entire spectacular landscape.

Nestled into diverse natural surroundings, this route leads along easily negotiable paths through the picturesque and peaceful Alpine landscape. The route takes you through woods, past crags and wild flower-carpeted rolling meadows. Now and then you can catch a glimpse of a farmhouse. This route is traffic and noise-free, which makes for a particularly pleasant experience.

The route reveals many breath-taking views of the lakes, Alps, Central Switzerland and vast swathes of the Central Plateau. Take the opportunity for a break when you reach Villa Honegg and soak up the stunning panorama. After enjoying the view and refreshments, you can return the same route.

An enjoyable tour includes the careful planning of the same. Please inform yourself in advance at the local information center about the route and weather conditions. Depending on the season and weather conditions, this route may be blocked or interrupted
