Dinner on the Niederbauen – a romantic, lovely candlelit dinner, a glowing sunset and breathtaking views of Lake Lucerne. What could be nicer? The trip back down is between 10 p.m. and 12.30 a.m. If you also want to marvel at the magnificent sunrise the following morning, you can spend the night at the Berggasthaus Niederbauen. Reservation required.
The revolving restaurant (table service) offers a 360-degree panoramic sunset experience. The 4-course dinner features ingredients sourced from the region and the Alps. Tip: it’s worth going up the Stanserhorn a little earlier and climbing to the top of the mountain to enjoy the grandiose views.
Cruise into the sunset as you enjoy a good meal. The two-and-a-half-hour gastro cruise takes place on the new motor vessel MS Diamant or a paddle steamer. Don’t forget to go out on deck to catch the last rays of the sun before it disappears behind the horizon. Experience the natural spectacle with the wind in your hair and fantastic views of the amazing play of colours. From June to September. Reservation required.
The Stanserhorn isn’t the only vantage point offering views of the Pilatus, Lake Alpnach and the Sarneraa valley. You should give the Ober Stöckmatt on the Bürgenberg a try. It’s located above Stans and Stansstad. The long panoramic bench is popular with hikers and mountain bikers. Click on the link to view the location on the map. 30 minutes’ walk from Obbürgen.
