We were looking for adventure, a place to relax, to immerse ourselves in Swiss culture and scenery. We got all of the above in this charming house in the small but central town of Lungern. Our host was fantastic, even picked us up at the train station and took us to the grocery store because it was going to be closed for the next few days! The house is well appointed and the location is hard to beat although there is a good amount of walking involved to and from the train station but it was perfect to burn off all the fondue that we ate! We took advantage of the boat and couldn't have asked for a more scenic setting with the lake, waterfall and mountains in the background. Must do while you're here:
1. Take the boat to the other side of the lake and visit the Kaiserstuhl restaurant.
2. Take the cable car to Turren
3. Visit the "cave restaurant" Cantina Caverna and shoot some guns
4. Take the train to Lucerne, Bernese Oberland and Interlachen
We will be back for sure!
This lovely place was exactly what we needed! It is exactly as it is shown, with commanding views of the mountains from every window! It is located in a great location, with a short drive to many main cities - 90 minutes to Zurich, and 60 minutes to both Bern and Lucerne. It is about a 20 minute drive to the lovely town of Interlaken, where you will probably pick up your groceries, souvenirs, etc. This place had everything you need, missing only a microwave, but it is otherwise stocked very well. It was exceptionally clean and carefully manicured. It is probably the cleanest place we have ever been! The place is also nicely finished. The communication with the owners was great as well. We will be back if we are fortunate enough to visit Switzerland again!
