The tour starts with the ascent with the Lünerseebahn. Once at the top, the Lünersee circular trail starts directly at the mountain station. The circular trail can be walked in both directions. If you start clockwise, there is a short climb at the beginning and the rest of the route is only downhill or flat around the lake. In the opposite direction, the descent awaits you at the end. A stop halfway at the Alpe Lünersee or at the beginning or end of the hike at the Douglass Hut is worthwhile. Return to the valley with the Lünerseebahn.

Author’s recommendation

The Lünersee circular trail with counterclockwise start is suitable for strollers up to Alpe Lünersee.
