Spectacular vertical lift on the Bürgenstock cliff

The historic Hammetschwand lift draws a vertical chain of lights in the night sky on the striking Bürgenstock rock and can be seen from afar. Even more beautiful than admiring the Hammetschwand lift at night from afar is a ride in this spectacular vertical lift, which starts in the middle of the rock face and reaches the Bürgenstockspitze in a few minutes - an unforgettable experience.
The best way to reach the Hammetschwand lift from Vitznau is by boat. From the Kehrsiten station, a funicular takes visitors to the Bürgenstock Resort. From there you can reach the lift on foot within 30 minutes on a path carved into the rock high above Lake Lucerne.
