Felsenweg Bürgenstock

Mount Bürgenstock is more than a mountain – it’s a legend. Its cliff path, built between 1900 and 1905, is also legendary. Both the path and the spectacular Hammetschwand Elevator lead you up to Hammetschwand, the highest point of the city of Lucerne.
Bürgenstock’s impressive cliff path offers outstanding views down on Lake Lucerne and of Europe’s fastest elevator. Meanwhile, other trails lead through varied terrain – some through forests and others past blooming meadows – with spectacular views throughout. It’s possible to walk all the way around Mount Bürgenstock.

If you don’t suffer from vertigo, the Hammetschwand Panorama Elevator is for you. Its views of the steep cliffs stretching down into the lake are breathtaking. In just about one minute, Europe’s highest outdoor stand-alone elevator whisks passengers up to the terrace atop Mount Bürgenstock. At 152.8 meters tall, the elevator is one of the most daring tourist attractions dating back to the Belle Epoque.
