Located at an altitude of 1,132 metres, the Hammetschwand Lift is the highest outdoor elevator in Europe. It connects a spectacular rock path with the lookout point Hammetschwand on the Bürgenstock plateau overlooking Lake Lucerne. It is the highest exterior elevator of Europe with a height of 153 meters and transports up to 12 persons directly up the Hammetschwand.
Already 105 years ago, the trip on board this lift was taking the breath away from its first passengers. Today, the lift makes the 153-metre vertical run in less than a minute, and the excitement of speeding so quickly skyward is exceeded only by the thrill of taking in the spectacular view.
