Lutersee at 1740 m above sea level, above Grafenort (OW).
The Mettlen-Rugisbalm and Rugisbalm-Lutersee cable cars take you to a beautiful view point. From the Lutersee mountain station, follow the gravel road to Eggen. After 1 hour and 15 minutes (3.2 km, approx. 300 m difference in altitude) you reach the Lutersee, 1740 m above sea level. In fine weather the idyllic mountain lake reflects the famous Titlis on its water surface.

 

Arrival by cable car
The 4-seater cable cars Mettlen - Rugisbalm and Mettlen - Rugisbalm run on demand. You sit down in the cable car and call in by phone. The Töngi family then sets the cable car in motion. Contact: Töngi family, +41 41 637 24 33
