Scenically beautiful round tour with summit experience on the Klimsenhorn and spectacular views of Lake Lucerne.

The Klimsenhorn is a beautiful pre-peak of Mount Pilatus and lies only a few metres above the historic Klimsenkapelle, which was built around 1856 and was last renovated in 2004. The round tour with its 670 m of ascent and descent is very easy to do. The trail is marked in red and white and is very varied and mostly leads across mountain meadows, and on the descent from the Klimsenkapelle chapel to the mountain station also somewhat across scree fields. The view of Lake Lucerne and the Pilatus mountains is simply breathtaking.
