Hergiswil NW – Alp Gschwänd – Fräkmüntegg – Unterlauelen
From Lake Lucerne (Hergiswil) via the Fräkmüntegg to the Eigenthal valley. A pleasant round walk that includes a boat trip (e.g. from Lucerne), a section by cable car to Alpgschwänd and a PostBus ride back to Lucerne. You pass the Alpgschwänd mountain restaurant with its traditional Central Swiss specialities. You could also stop for a bite to eat at the Unterlauelen alp restaurant: the perfect place for some peace and quiet and typical farm food.
Do try the Heitertannli veal liver at the Alpgschwänd restaurant and/or the Geschlagene Rindfleisch (larded beef) at Unterlauelen in the Eigenthal.
