What to Expect
Experience the beauty of Bürgenstock in a full day trip with many different ways of transportation.  Depart from Lucerne by boat and change to a Funicular. We will have already plenty of photography opportunities from the water on the 30 min. ride from the comfort of your seat. At 1,200 mts. walk at the edge of the mountain along the impressive cliff path, a 30 min. panorama trail offering outstanding views down on Lake Lucerne. We will take photos from the spectacular alpine landscape and also take some photos of you in this amazing natural setting, this is just the perfect start before reaching the Panorama Elevator. 

If you don’t suffer from vertigo, the Hammetschwand Panorama Elevator is for you. Its views of the steep cliffs stretching down into the lake are breathtaking. In just about one minute, Europe’s highest outdoor stand-alone elevator whisks passengers up to the terrace atop Mount Bürgenstock. The 152.8 meter-high lift is one of the most daring tourist attractions dating back to the Belle Epoque. Photograph the natural wonders in Central Switzerland in an environment which is best described as heavenly!

When you have finished exploring the Alpine resort, it's time to head down via the funicular and then by boat through the pristine Lake Lucerne.  

For those who booked the tour optional get ready to Explore Lucerne city as a local on a lovely 2 hrs. photo walk visiting the Chapel Bridge, Lion Monument, Old City Wall and Lucerne Castle.

A unique experience with plenty of photography opportunities from the beginning to the end!
