Whether from the shore or on a boat, fishing in picturesque Lake Lungern is a dream for devotees of the activity – and perhaps the start of a new passion for newcomers.

Early in the morning, when the sun rises and the glorious alpine scenery is reflected in the tranquil emerald green lake, or early in the evening, when the idyllic landscape offers a mystical play of colours, that's when you wish this fishing moment would last forever.

Experience hours of peaceful solitude in a setting such as only Lungern could offer. Fishing in Lungern is a marvellous experience for everyone – and barbecuing your catch before the stunning alpine backdrop is an enchanting experience.

Uniquely for Switzerland, fishing in Lake Lungern is permitted in winter apart from between 1 and 25 December.
