What to do in summer

In summer paragliding, trekking on the slopes of the Swiss Alps and mountain biking are
popular here.

In addition to active entertainment, our guests can swim in the crystal clear waters of Lake
Lucerne, treat themselves to a massage in one of the spa resorts, take a walk in the historic
center of Lucerne, as well as visit local cheese factories, chocolate factories and create
their own exclusive chocolate.
