Welcome to Brunnen
Tucked into the folds of mountains, where Lake Lucerne and Lake Uri meet at right angles, Brunnen enjoys mesmerising views south and west. A regular guest, Turner was so impressed by the vista that he whipped out his watercolours to paint The Bay of Uri from Brunnen (1841). As the local föhn wind rushes down from the mountains, it creates perfect conditions for sailing, paragliding, windsurfing and kitesurfing. When the wind is up, brightly coloured sails come out. And don’t forget the folkloric hot air of the weekly alpenhorn concerts in summer.
