April to September only
One of my favorite local destinations is the nearby mountain reservoir of Bannalpsee. If you are looking for a quick getaway that isn't full of tourists and will provide a remarkable beautiful setting for a hike or a picnic this is a great option for you.
It is one of the most peaceful places I have found within a short distance from Luzern and I visit the lake at least a few times each summer.
There is a short hike around the lake (less than 5km) which is very easy.
Bring some snacks along as there is no shops around. You can also bring some sausages for a mountain BBQ or join me in one of the mountain huts we will find along our way for a Swiss traditional meal.
This is a tour combining the following transportation means:
A local train to Wolfenschiessen, a post bus to Oberrickenbach and finally 2 different mini cable cars to take us up and down to the lake of Bannalp.
Be ready to walk 1. 5 to 2 hours mainly flat. (Many people do it with kids and strollers , so don't panic).
Back to Lucerne again bus and train.
