A wonderful hike from the Bürgenstock Resort of about 25 minutes with an awesome view of Lake Luzern. The Hammetschwand Lift is for me a Swiss attraction which I must see as it is the highest exterior Lift in all of Europe. The walk was...More

First, Buergenstock is absolutely fantastic on a clear, sunny day or even on a day with a cloud cover, as long as you ensure that Buergenstock itself is above the cloud layer. You will absolutely not regret visiting this fantastic mountain. There has been some...More

The resort is being rebuilt and expanded. The views are amazing but I have fears that it will effect the pristine family farms surrounding the area

The Bürgenstock including lift is an easy walk with a wonderful view on lake, Lucerne, Rigi and just North. What you definetely should avoid is this really bad tourist trap on top. Cheapest food (industrial stuff served straight from the can), unfriendly service and seating...More
