Do not only dream of fantastic views, hike in a unique mountain world!

To the Swiss, Central Switzerland – green, mountainous and amazingly beautiful – is the spirit of ‘Swissness’. It was here that the pact that kick-started a nation was signed in 1291; here that hero William Tell gave a rebel yell against Habsburg rule. Geographically, politically, spiritually, this is the heartland. Nowhere does the flag fly higher.

On the Klewenalp marmots greet the visitors at the mountain station, before they set out on the panoramic loop. A roomy cable car (with the capacity of max. 70 people) takes you up to Klewenalp from Beckenried. From here the view of Lake of Luzern and the surrounding mountain panorama is irresistible!

Enjoy the mountain station Klewenalp in both summer and winter. For visitors there are many activities such as walks of various difficulty, winter fun including sledding, snow-shoe walking and airboard.

What to expect

The longest cable-car in Central Switzerland takes you from the centre of the village of Beckenried up to the hiking and biking area of Klewenalp-Stockhütte. At the top station of the Klewenalp cable-car (1593 m) is a large children’s playground, a pet’s zoo and a “marmot park”. You can spend the night in the mountain inn or, for a special adventure, in a tepee camp. A panoramic circular walk offers excellent views of the surrounding scenery. 

After travelling up to the Klewenalp, the circular tour takes about 2 hours on foot through meadows and pine forests to the Stockhütte. Then you can rest on the cable-car down to Emmetten. The tour continues by post bus to Beckenried and then by train and bus back to Lucerne. 

 You can quickly reach Klewenalp with the cable car from Beckenried. The panoramic view over six Swiss lakes is unique and the alpine hiking trail goes safely over beautiful alp meadows – a great feeling being in the midst of nature for the adventure lovers.
