André W.

Luzern, Lucerne, Switzerland

Born in the central part of Germany, I started with my parents hiking all over Europa while other kids laid at the beach.

Soon as Teenager I was keen to achieve more and learned climbing and alpinism at the German Alpine Club.
More than ten years ago I decided to move to Switzerland, not for tax reason, but to be closer to the Alpes and thus being more flexible to cope with weather changes and alpine conditions. Now I am 49 years old and have almost 35 years of mountain and travel experience. I have guided many people, locals and tourists, here in Switzerland on snowshoes, ski, grampons and hiking boots. Furthermore, I am also course leader and guide for snowshoeing, alpine routes, trekking and via ferratas for the section Pilatus of the Swiss Alpine Club.
Lucerne is my home base and from here I have explored all parts of Switzerland, from Ticino to Valais and Engadina. I know Central Switzerland very well and can show you attractive places in nature or cities. If you prefer we explore places away from the tourists' crowds, but if you are here for the first time you maybe would like to see the standard sights.

I am very open to offer you tailormade excursions, no matter if you are families or couples, colleagues or friends, naturalists, hikers or alpinists, photographers.

Let me know your dream how to explore Switzerland and I show you the right place!
I am looking forward to make your stay in Switzerland comfortable, joyful and memorable!

A Recent Review of this guide

André was a great guide helping us see as much of Zurich, Titlis, and Lucerne in one day. With an easy pickup from the airport, our fun day began. He was very accommodating and friendly. André knows so much about the Swiss Alps and it really added to our drive as he pointed out notable summits and talked about hikes and interesting facts about each. We would highly recommend André as a local guide.
