Holiday region Lake Lucerne
The country's geographical centre is up on the Älggialp, from where visitors can walk along a section of the Obwalden High Route to the Melchsee-Frutt high-altitude plateau with its delightful lakes and mountainscapes.
Pilgrims tread the St. James Way to Flüeli-Ranft, birthplace of the saintly Brother Klaus, or stop off to re-energise at the convent village of Maria-Rickenbach. Unforgettable experiences include excursions to Mt. Pilatus, featuring the world's steepest cog railway, and Mt. Stanserhorn with its unique 360° views.
Families will love “Goldi” in Emmetten, the children's adventure playground at Wirzweli and the Zwergliweg gnome path on the Bannalp. The monster kick-scooters available at the panoramic world of Lungern-Schönbüel offer thrills and spills aplenty. Hikers, mountain bikers and climbers will head for the delights of the Klewenalp. And what can be more spectacular than the rock-face path along the Bürgenstock, with nothing between it and the lake far below.
