Welcome to the Urmiberg, the sunny plateau above Brunnen

This little gem of a place is perched 702 metres above Lake Lucerne at 1140 metres above sea level, so in winter it's above the clouds that frequently blanket the lower regions. You get there quickly and conveniently via the Urmiberg cableway.


Awaiting you are unforgettable panoramic views of Lake Uri, the Rütli Meadow, the Swiss Path, the Schwyz valley, the Mythen range and the Uri, Nidwalden and Glarus Alps. It's popular with paragliders and a favourite setting-off point for splendid mountain bike adventures, hikes or strolls around the Rigi area. The cosy Timpelweid inn has a large viewing terrace next to the cableway terminus – perfect for taking some well-earned relaxation time and enjoying the local hospitality!
