  • INTRODUCTIONDear Reader,

    We are so glad that you are reading this booklet. This is the second booklet that www.livinginluzern.info has produced. The first booklet, Get Ready for Winter, was so popular that we decided that Get Ready for Summer was the logical next step.

    In this booklet, we have given you nearly 60 possible activities to enjoy this summer. We hope that even if you cant do everything, you will try some-thing new this summer that you didnt know about before now.

    We also hope that you will acknowledge the companies who have paid for advertising in this booklet. The booklet is free because of their generous contribution to Living in Luzern. In particular, Id like to thank our Strategic Partners: Business Development Lucerne, MSD, UBS, ISOCS International School of Central Switzerland and D4 Business Village Lucerne.

    Id also like to thank Melanie Andres for her diligent translation and copy editing, having her on the team made a huge difference in efficiency.

    Lastly, there would be no booklet without the amazing contribution from Claudia Foertig, our resident expert on things to do in and around Luzern. Claudia has tested and tried EVERY SINGLE THING in this booklet and it is her knowledge and years of record keeping that have come together in print. Im eter-nally grateful to Susan Williamson for the introduction to Claudia.

    Have a great summer, be sure to stop by the Living in Luzern website for live links to all of the things mentioned in this booklet!

  • PERFECT DAY #1

    Beautiful Hiking, BBQ & Waterfall ENGELBERG

    1 The Ritz on TitlisChoose one of two stunning hikes from the valley station Titlis to Gerschnialp. For a steep hike not suitable for strollers start to the right of the valley station. Alternatively, make your way from the left on a path that during winter serves as the sledding run and is walkable with a stroller. A stop at Restaurant Gerschnialp-Caf Ritz is optional. To return to the valley from Gerschnialp, rent a Trotti Bike (3.5 km) as an alternative to the cable car.

    2 Dip in Lake on TitlisTake the cable car to Trbsee (2nd stop). Here you can hike around the Trbsee in one hour. Simply follow the signs for Knorrliwanderweg and read up on nutri-tion and exercise. This trail is suitable for strollers and you will come across four spots along the way where you can bar-becue or have a picnic. Alternatively, grab a bite to eat at one of the restaurants. On a very hot summer day, take a dip in the lake. But be warned, it is very cold! To complete your day, take the cable car back to Gerschnialp and why not return to the valley by Trotti Bike, if you feel adventurous. Or let the cable car take you back all the way.

    3 Brunni Tickling PathTake the cable car to Brunni or hike from the valley to the mountain station. If you opt for the latter, note that the trail is very steep and only suitable for experienced hikers. Starting from the mountain sta-tion, there are several beautiful, well-marked paths. A fun thing to do is the Kitzelpfad, or tickling path. It starts at the mountain station of the Brunni chairlift and takes you around the idyllic Hrzlisee (1,860 m a.s.l.), and you walk it barefoot! At Ristis children will enjoy a real water adventure with lots of water activi-ties. A big playground is located behind the restaurant. There is also a toboggan run. Children younger than 12 years ac-companied by an adult are free.

    TOP TIP: Childrens birthday party with Glo-bi (the mascot). To book call 041 639 60 60.

    The Engelberg area consists of two mountains, Titlis to the right and Brunni to the left. At the end of the valley, you will find beautiful hiking trails, BBQ spots and a waterfall.

  • 4 End of the ValleyFollow the road towards the golf course to the end. On the right hand side is a large parking lot (subject to charge). From here several beautiful hiking trails lead into the back valley. You will also find several restau-rants.

    TOP TIPA waterfall hidden in the

    forest! Starting from the parking lot at the end of the valley, cross the

    river, keep to the right and walk straight ahead. After a few minutes youll hear the waterfall. Follow the sound to the left into

    the forest. (Thats exactly how we found it.) Theres also a large BBQ area and

    an ideal picnic spot by the waterfall.

  • PERFECT DAY #2

    Hiking, Biking & Shooting ArrowsEMMETEN-STOCKHUETTE & KLEWENALP

    1 Hike + Petting ZooHike from Stockhuette to Klewenalp. When you get there about 1.5 hours later, you will find a petting zoo and a ground-hog enclosure. Both mountain stations have big playgrounds. And there are several places offering accommodation. Alternatively, do this tour by moun-tain bike. Some stretches are very steep, so it is best to take only older children.

    2 Robin Hood3D Bogenpark in Emmeten-Stockhuette: this park comprises a forest circuit where you shoot 3D animals with bow and arrow. There is an area to warm up. Targets are numbered and half way through, at No. 14, a BBQ spot invites to take a break. Only proficient archers admit-ted and your own equipment is required. As an alternative to returning to the val-ley by cable car, take a Trotti Bike.

    The summer season starts on May 18, 2013.

    Children up to age 16 accompanied by a par-ent or grandparent go for free with the Junior

    and Grandchild Card (Junior-, Enkelkarte).

    Both destinations are reachable by various cable car operators, but located on the same mountain and also connected via hiking trails. To get to Emmeten-Stockhtte takes a bit longer than to reach Klewenalp (via cable car from Beckenried). Both cable car operators

    offer ample parking spaces free of charge.

    Adventure Trails for Kids MEIRINGEN-HASLIBERG

    1 Adventure Walk #1Wasserwendi: From mid-June onwards, you can walk the Zwergenweg named Das Haus am Bannwald. It is filled with numerous exciting spots for children. The length of this trail is about three kilometers. Starting 100 meters below the Bergrestaurant Kserstatt, it will take you about two hours to walk via Balisalp along the Wildbach to Bannwald and finally to the station at Lischen. You will pass through high moorland, moun-tain pastures and fir forests. An alternative route is the Monster-Trotti that takes you from Kserstatt to Lischen.

    2 Educational PathWasserwendi: With 12 stops, this trail leads through high and low moors, teaching about the various types of moor as well as offering interesting informa-tion about the Hasliberg flora and fauna.

    Starting point is Kserstatt. In about two hours, you pass through diverse moorlands via Balisalp to Lischen. This trail is accessible from mid-June to late October.

    3 Adventure Walk #2Reuti: The other Zwergenweg called Aben-teuer auf dem Zwergenweg opens from mid-June onwards. Along the way, children search for little treasures in a cave, swing high into the air on an eagle swing and learn about the dwarves. Plan about two hours to walk this five-kilometer path from Mgisalp via Gummenalp to Bidmi. The starting point is about 100 me-ters below the Bergrestaurant Mgisalp. The trail takes a slight downward course through mountain pastures and fir forests. An alternative is to go by trotti bike from Mgisalp to Bidmi.

    Bergbahnen Meiringen-Hasliberg AG6084 Hasliberg WasserwendiTel: 033 550 50 50www.meiringen-hasliberg.ch

    Children aged 6-15 accompanied by a parent go for free with the SBB Junior Card.

    With trails that appeal to all levels Meiringen-Hasliberg is an ideal hiking destination. Hasli-berg also offers 17 different bike routes. There are two cable cars: Wasserwendi and Reuti.

    Specifically created for children, the two Muggestutz Zwergenwege (dwarf paths) are an absolute family highlight. These beautiful trails are based on the story of Muggestutz, the

    eldest Hasli dwarf and king of dwarves, and invite children to relive his adventures.
