In order to allow his guests a walk on the northern slope, tourism pioneer Josef Bucher-Durrer had this path built at the beginning of the last century. The road construction took five years.
The Hammetschwand Panoramalift is only for those who are free from vertigo. However, the view of the steeply sloping rocks down into the lake is very impressive and breathtaking. In less than a minute, the highest freestanding outdoor lift in Europe takes you up to the impressive Bürgenstock viewing terrace. The 152.8 m high lift is one of the most daring tourist facilities of the "Belle Époque".
Enjoy an aperitif after the hike in the Berggasthaus Hammetschwand.
