Culinary tip in the vicinity:

Glasi-Restaurant Adler, Hergiswil
This is where three legendary greats meet at their current best: the "Glasi", the "Adler" and picturesque Central Switzerland with Lake Lucerne. The nearby famous mountains of Pilatus, Rigi, Stanserhorn and Bürgenstock, as well as world-famous Lucerne, complete this prominent region.
