Tourism in Nidwalden

Tourism is a major economic driver here thanks to the canton's favourable location. With Lake Lucerne and the mountains within easy reach, leisure and recreational activities of all kinds are a year-round reality. The lakeside municipalities offer a whole range of water sports, and cableways and railways provide direct access to the pre-Alps. Destinations are quick and easy to reach for both holidayers and day trippers.

There is a wealth of choice: the resort of Klewenalp, Stanserhorn with the world's first CABRIO, the Titlis Glacier, the pre-Alpine region of Bannalp, the cosmopolitan Bürgenstock Resort with the Hammetschwand Lift (the world's tallest outdoor lift) and summer tobogganing at Wirzweli – to name but a few attractions. There is so much to see and do in Canton Nidwalden, with its natural surroundings, sporting opportunities and recreational activities.
