Full description
Experience the beauty of Bürgenstock on a full-day trip with many different forms of transportation. Depart from Lucerne by train and change to the bus traveling along green fields and Alpine scenery. You will have already had plenty of photography opportunities for a 30 minute ride from the comfort of your seat. At 1,200 meters, walk at the edge of the mountain along the impressive cliff path offering outstanding views down on Lake Lucerne. Take photos from the spectacular Alpine landscape and also take some photos of yourself in this amazing natural setting, the perfect start before reaching the Panorama Elevator.  If you don’t suffer from vertigo, the Hammetschwand Panorama Elevator will be for you. Its views of the steep cliffs stretching down into the lake are breathtaking. In just about one minute, Europe’s highest outdoor stand alone elevator will whisk you up to the terrace atop Mount Bürgenstock. The 152.8 meter high lift is one of the most daring tourist attractions dating back to the Belle Epoque. Photograph the natural wonders in Central Switzerland in an environment which is best described as heavenly. When you have finished exploring the Alpine resort, it will be time to head down via the funicular and then by boat through the pristine Lake Lucerne. This is an unique experience with plenty of photography opportunities from the beginning to the end. This tour is intended for amateur as well as serious photography enthusiasts with an interest to visit and photograph the beauty of the Swiss Alps together with its many traditions and culture . No prior expertise or experience in photography is necessary, as your photographer/ guide will be there to assist you at every level. You may carry any camera – a simple aim-and-shoot or a DSLR. Travel enthusiasts who are not photographers but keen to experience the multiple facets of Switzerland can also benefit from the tour.
