Best season

depending on the weather


We start the cycling tour at Stansstad railway station and then cross the lakeside municipality of Stansstad in the direction of Harissen Bay. Here begins a narrow lakeside road along Lake Lucerne to Kehrsiten. This is partly blasted into the rock. Shortly after Harissenbucht, we pass the former military fortress of Fürigen, a 200-metre-long cave system. Today it is open as a museum from April to October. Far from the hustle and bustle, you will find an oasis of relaxation in Kehrsiten.
