Der Vierwaldstättersee von einer seiner schönsten Seiten, denn der Bürgenstock ragt in West-Ost ausrichtung mitten hinein in den See. Auf der Südseite steile Weideflächen und auf der Nordseite 600m hohe, fast senkrechte Felswände, die dem See entgegenstürzen. Der Aufstieg auf den Grat führt über Wege, Pfade und Treppen gut beschattet durch den Wald, der sich immer wieder öffnet und weite Blicke über den See freigibt.
