Ausflugsparadies Klewenalp-Stockhuette

Reviewed By weberwest - Bellingham, Washington

Easily accessible via a gondola from Beckenried, which itself can be reached by road or boat from Lucerne or other communities along Lake Lucerne. There are a good number of trails of various length starting at the mountain station of the gondola. We took the easy, 45 min Alpine Flora way which has pictures and explanations of the various alpine flowers encountered (alas only in German). At the beginning of the trail, and also about 2/3 through the hike (going clock-wise), there are several restaurants where you can relax, enjoy a drink and taste some of the typical foods of the region. We did this short hike 2 years ago in July and the flowers were spectacular, including a rare Edelweiss, and we just did it again in early September, when the flowers were already thinning out, only a few remaining and past their prime in appearance. Both time we had a small bite at the charming small restaurant "Bergbeizli Klewenalp" situated along the Alpine Flora way 2/3rds from the start. Definitely an area and a spot worth visiting.

Hello We are a joung team of paragliding pilots and do Tandemflys arround Lake Lucern but most of the time from our homebase Mount Niederbauen over the beautiful lokated village Emmetten on a small plateao and half island abouve the lake. Here is one of the best spots to become a pilot in Swiss and most of us did our edjukation in the lokal flyinschool Flugschule Emmetten cause of the good conditions and the save landing and takeoff places. The view here is just amazing and thats why it was dedicated as the place with the best view in Swiss in 2014. You can see the Kanton/Staates Schwyz, Nidwalden and Luzern and with some luck the upwind is taking us from the takeoff to the peak of Niederbauen and you will also see the Kanton Uri and the spectaculare mountainrange off the Gotthardtmassiv with the snowy peaks. Book your fly today and take off from the ground

I was there in autumn. My friend advised me to try to fly with a glider in tandem. I was scared before... But Florian is really professional pilot who can help you to do the best and get really positive emotions from the flight. After flying we could do barbecue on the sunset with amazing view! Thanks a lot! I will definitely come again! Highly recommend!
Я была там осенью. Мой друг посоветовал мне попробовать полетать на параплане. Я поначалу была напугана... Но Флориан - профессионал высокого класса, который мне помог расслабиться и получить максимум приятных впечатлений от полета. После полета на закате мне организовали пикник на вершине горы с потрясающим видом! Спасибо большое! Я обязательно приеду еще! Настоятельно рекомендую!

Weggis is quite small but the walk along the prom makes a pleasant stroll. There are a couple of cafes where you can stop for a break.

Mineralbad & Spa Rigi-Kaltbad

Reviewed By U1traviolet - Riga, Latvia

Unique location on top of Rigi mountain with panoramic view. Good quality of treatments and choice of jacuzzi. The only downside is that no photos are allowed (it's a pity as view is really great), and no bar, so if you want some drink or snack you need to go out to another place. Bathrobes and towels are provided at a charge.

Reviewed By Richard S - Portland, Australia

We went on the very new mountain gondola up from the pretty little town of Stans. Was quite exhilarating,with a very large 2 storey cable car holding up to 90 people. The ride up was amazing with wonderful views. Unfortunately it was foggy at the top so the views were nonexistent,but we enjoyed the excellent facilities at the top and had lunch there. The return trip down was great once we got below the fog. This is Swiss engineering at its best,and I'm sure the views from the top would have been very beautiful. As on all Swiss Mountains make sure you take a coat as it can be 10 degrees cooler at the top

Festung Vitznau

Reviewed By NCG_WI - Rehovot, Israel

The fortress provides a unique glance to the WW2 from the side of a neutral country.
Unlike other ancient Castles, the fortress is "alive" and ready for use. Also, unlike other war museums throughout Europe, here the focus is on planning an appropriate defense rather than an attack.
The guided tour is very informative and even amusing (thanks to the guide's interactions with the audience), and reveals another side to Switzerland that could be hardly found anywhere else.
It is much recommended to bring a sweater to the tour- the fortress is cooled to ~15 deg.C.

Buergenstock

Reviewed By EDLichtenstein - Wynnewood, Pennsylvania

Take the bus up to "Obbürgen, Abzw. Trogen" and walk the rest of the way, first into the tiny town with the hotels, and then follow the cliff path to the lift. This part is stroller accessible, at least to the lift. It has some of the best views of Luzern and Pilatus.
The lift ride is short, and not as exciting as I'd hoped it would be.
But at the top...wow! The views of Lake Luzern and also the valley and Mountains on the other side are phenomenal!
The cafe serves very standard Swiss fare - sausages, fries, etc.
Walk to the far end of the uppermost section. It will take you 5 minutes but you'll be rewarded with more views in a different direction.
Finally, take the hiking path opposite the lift and enjoy a nice downhill stroll back to the bus stop.

Golf Club Gersau

The miniature golf course directly in front of the post office, on a concentrated spot, invites adults and children to a tournament. Racquets and balls can be purchased at the infocenter or in the restaurant Tubli for a deposit of CHF 10.00 each.

Hoping this is the same thing but the mini golf on the front is lovely. Maybe a little overgrown but for free you can't complain. Nice selection of holes and the actual surface is in good condition and very playable. Loved it.
