from CHF 49.00 p.P.
A boat trip on Lake Lucerne, a visit to the Rütli meadow steeped in history and the most important thing: culinary delights!
If this appeals to you, the Culinary Tour in the Cradle of Switzerland is just the thing for you. Tickets for the Culinary Tour Cradle of Switzerland are available at the Brunnen boat station, the Schiffstation Beckenried and at the Gästesteinformation Altdorf and online (from Brunnen).

Apéro in Brunnen

The culinary tour starts either in Altdorf, Beckenried or Brunnen. You start with an aperitif at Quai 2, right on the lakeside promenade in Brunnen, where you can enjoy an impressive mountain and lake backdrop. The journey continues by boat, which takes you from Brunnen to Treib. There you have a direct connection to the Treib-Seelisberg railway. From Seelisberg, it's a leisurely hike to the Rütli meadow.

Lunch on the historic Rütli meadow

The Rütli meadow is where the Rütli Oath is said to have taken place in 1291 with representatives of the original cantons of Uri, Schwyz and Unterwalden. The Rütli Meadow is known as the founding site of Switzerland and is of great national importance. Enjoy the main course on the large covered panoramic terrace in the Rütlihaus restaurant. Incidentally, directly below the Rütlihaus restaurant you will find the oath square where the alliance is said to have been concluded.

Take the boat to dessert

Take the boat from the Rütli to Brunnen. Your culinary tour ends at the Restaurant Weisses Rössli in Brunnen with a coffee and a surprise dessert. If you started your tour in Altdorf or Beckenried, you can look forward to another boat trip on the fjord-like Lake of Uri, which will take you back to your starting point.
