Kehrsiten – Bürgenstock
The two piers in Canton Nidwalden at the part of the lake known as the "Chrütztrichter" (cross funnel), Kehrsiten-Dorf and Kehrsiten-Bürgenstock, can be reached by boat from Stansstad, Hergiswil or Lucerne. You then pass through fruit trees and steeply over the Tritt and suspended stairs to the Bürgenstock Resort. Where to eat on the way: the Seehotel Baumgarten in Kehrsiten is popular for its fresh fish specialities, while Bernadette Odermatt-Felber serves meals on her farm in Obbürgen in a cosy wood-panelled parlour, including a vegetable carpaccio with balsamic cream as a starter.
