There are so many reasons to visit Lake Lungern!

A visit to Lake Lungern will show you what it’s like to live in a small fairytale village.

I spent my days here basking in the relaxed lifestyle that surrounded me. For so long, this village was left untouched, as it was extremely difficult to access. It wasn’t until the Brünig railway line was built, that the population began to build near Lake Lungern. Outside of this village, the settlements of Kaiserstuhl, Bürglen and Obsee also surround the lake. If you have time, Obsee is home to some of the best maintained parts of old town. Here, you can still find charming old houses in their original structure and style. They’re complete with blooming flower boxes on every window, and gardens bursting with color! You’ll feel like you’ve taken a trip into a simpler, more beautiful way of life. Upon the slopes of the grassy mountainside, you can watch the native highlanders hard at work breeding their cattle.
