Hooded beach chairs by the sea of mist in Menzberg

A trail leading to seven beautiful locations

The idyllic village of Menzberg in the Lucerne backcountry is the highest village by Mount Napf at 1,016 metres above sea level, and will take your breath away with its unique 360° panoramic views. During the autumn and winter months, it often sits regally above the sea of mist. Stories from the last ten years and music from Menzberg clubs and musicians await you in a beach chair at specially beautiful vantage points.

Travel comfortably by train to "Menznau". Continue with bus 261 to the final stop "Menzberg, Dorfplatz". All trails start directly at the bus stop.
