Out and about
Our region is also world famous as a vacation destination. If you have time to explore the surrounding area, the first place to visit is the beautiful village of Küssnacht. The scenic lakeside promenade with the picturesque view of Lake Lucerne and Mount Rigi is certainly worth a stroll. But Central Switzerland offers an incredible amount of other possibilities for discovery with all its mountains and lakes. Our team will be happy to share a few tips with you.
Take the cable car directly from Küssnacht to Seebodenalp – the sun terrace of the Rigi. Once you reach the top, many hiking options and a breathtaking view waiting to be explored. The rustic mountain inns and a variety of barbecue sites offer an individual time-out in the heart of pure nature.
Scheduled boat trips
Fresh lake air and a breathtaking landscape await! The Lake Lucerne Shipping Company departs several times a day from Küssnacht am Rigi to Lucerne – a city full of sights and attractive shopping opportunities. Those who prefer to take a more leisurely cruise can book the approximately two-hour "Küssnacht round trip".
Staldenmatt Lido, Immensee
This bathing area is accessible free of charge and is a popular destination on Lake Zug. Equipped with changing rooms, toilet facilities, barbecue area and bistro, the lido is a charming spot for swimming, sunbathing and relaxation.
The world’s steepest funicular railway takes passengers from Schwyz right into the car-free mountain village of Stoos. The mountain village high above Lake Lucerne offers a wide range of mountain sports and possibilities for family excursions. The additional ride on the chairlift to the top of the Fronalpstock is rewarded with a view of over 10 lakes and countless mountain peaks.
