Dear guests and visitors
Due to construction works, the railroad line between Stansstad and Engelberg will be closed from 22 March to 18 April 2021. Rail replacement buses will operate.
The Bürgenstock Felsenweg and the Hammetschwand Lift are currently closed.
The Hammetschwand viewpoint can be reached via the hiking trails.
The reopening will be in spring 2021, depends on the snow and weather conditions (expected end of may 2021). As soon as the Felsenweg and the Hammetschwand Lift are opened, this will be communicated here.
The Felsenweg was built between 1900 and 1905 and leads high above Lake Lucerne from Bürgenstock Resort to the Känzeli view point. It is accessible during the summer months from about May to October. The dates of opening in spring and closing in autumn are communicated on www.felsenweg.ch.

Approximately 30 minutes' walk from the Bürgenstock Resort.
The Hammetschwand Lift is also a special building. In one minute, the highest outdoor lift in Europe (152.8 m) leads from the Felsenweg to the Hammetschwand. At the top you can expect a fantastic view, a mountain restaurant and a picnic area. The lift runs during the summer months and is closed in winter and reopened in spring at the same time as the Felsenweg.
