Hiking up from Beckenried, a mere 30min train ride from Lucerne, one reaches the Klewenalp at 1600m above sea level. From up there one can enjoy a grandiose view over the lake Lucerne with the queen on mountains The Rigi just across on the opposite shore. In summer a great number of hiking trails from family friendly and wheelchair suitable ones to high alpine trails, there is something for everybody. In the winter, the station is a well known ski resort, very popular with families as the slopes are rather easy.

Wonderful lake and surroundings!
Back in 2005, I took a boat ride over there, from Lucerne and back! It was wintertime, it was cold, but I had a great time, specially for all the beauty around!
Very beautiful picture!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, horizontal format, chosen pov and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,

hello Daniel, What overzealous view you present here! I would liked hike there too :). Fantastic composition with the lake making a big "S". Amazing colours of lake and mountains that surround it.

This is a dizzying view, and in a great way, we can see so far in this! The color of the lake is fantastic, and I love the clouds beginning to creep over the horizon, like a big fluffy blanket on a blue bed. Looking at the little dots that are boats down there gives an idea of how huge this is, and how much detail you captured here. Really nicely done.

this is a spectacular view! I like very much the pointy trees in the foreground adding asymmetric touch. Very pleasant natural colors. Incredible sharpness and clarity.
It is nice to hear that there are also some family friendly trails there. I started recently to worry that having 2 year old daughter I won't be able to hike for a very long time... Although I did hike recently a mountain in the UK but obviously they are more like hills.
