At the heart of Central Switzerland, Klewen Alp is a true paradise for day-trippers. At 1,600 m above sea level it offers a breathtaking panoramic view of Lake Lucerne and the surrounding mountain scenery. From Beckenried, take a cable car up to Klewen Alp, an ideal starting point for fabulous walks and other leisure activities in the picturesque mountains of Central Switzerland.


Leaving the mountain station, you will meet the resident Klewen Alp family of marmots. A few steps further, on a gentle slope by the children’s playground and opposite the ‘Panorama’ mountain inn, you will reach the Ricola herb garden. Jog your memory – have a go at the quiz to test your knowledge of herbs in the Ricola herb garden. Small display boards tell you all about the 13 herbs to be found in every Ricola herb drop.
