Hiking is the trump card in the Lucerne-Vierwaldstättersee Region. The landscape captivates with its fascinating mountain world with wide valleys, crystal-clear lakes and breathtaking panoramas. As you can see, the ideal setting for your varied hikes awaits you here. With the train and the numerous mountain railways, you can comfortably and quickly get up to lofty heights and start your hike with a magnificent view. Whether exciting mountain tour, comfortable family hike or the rustic “Buirebähnli-Safari” — here everyone will find his suitable route.

In June 2019, six adventurous bloggers will each be exploring a spectacular hiking route in various Swiss regions: Climb the Mythen near Lucerne, enjoy the view from the San Salvatore in Ticino or a relaxed rail hiking trip? Switzerland also has something for every type of hiker in the Valais, Graubünden and Bern region, with a wide variety of hiking trails to choose from — the path quickly becomes the destination! Together with "ME AND MY BRAVE FOX" (bhc2019.myswitzerland.com/region/luzern/), this collection takes you up into the breathtaking mountain landscapes around Lucerne and Lake Lucerne.

There's also a great competition: Test your knowledge of Switzerland and win your very own personal trip to Switzerland for two: With SWISS you fly to Switzerland, where you will explore the Bern region and Ticino. A total of five overnight stays await you at the Handeck Hotel and Natural Resort and the Hotel Belvedere Locarno. On top of that, you'll get two Swiss Travel Passes, with which you can use buses, trains and ships on your journey free of charge.

The Via Alpina partial hike, which we have selected here, is one of the most beautiful hikes in the Engelberg region

    The Engelbergertal in the heart of Central Switzerland is known for its many small cable cars. Since they are often run by farmers, they are affectionately called "Buiräbähnli", ie Bauernbähnchen. On this hike you use several of these "Buiräbähnli" to float up into the mountains of the Engelbergertal
