Discover the region where Switzerland became a country in 1291.
Our first stopover ist the romantic town of Brunnen. This village is romantically situated at the border of the Lake of Lucern and offers a fantastic view over upon the lake and the surrounding mountains. Here we can walk a bit along the lake to enjoy the view and eventually have a cup of coffee.
Then we drive a historical street along the charming Lake of Lucern towards Altdorf, which is the town where our national hero Wilhelm Tell did live. On the way we have the chance to visit a special historical site, in relation with the legend, the Tells Platte.
In Altdorf there is a small but very interesting Tell Museum, which we can visit. We can walk through the historical village with narrow streets, a main plaza and beautiful half-timbered houses. We can have a drink in a street-coffee.
After that we drive for a short while the street up the montain to reach the cable-car station Biel-Kinzig, where we board an old fashion gondola, which will bring us up to 1750 meters above sea level. From there we have a breathtaking view towards the mountains and into the valley.
The absolute highlight of this tour.
With good walking shoes (strong sneakers will already do), we can walk for about one hour to the other side of the mountain, where we have another cable car waiting for us, to bring us down to the place where we have our car parked. On that easy, flat walking tour we have the chance to have a break in a traditional mountain restaurant and enjoy the beautiful view eating some local dish and drinking something.
Back at the parking place there is a small store, which sells local handmade beauty-products as well as local homemade cheese and meat products.
By now we will be very tired and exhausted, but surely we will have experienced an unforgettable and impressive day!
On the way back we can have another stopover at Brunnen.
