Vintage poster Bürgenstock bei Luzern


circa 1950

Otto Ernst poster printed in lithography on stone for the Bürgenstock mountain, showing the famous Hammetschwand elevator.
The Bürgenstock is a mountain above the Lake Lucerne in Switzerland (Vierwalstättersee). It is a very famous viewpoint because the mountain is almost completely surrounded by the lake, and the summit is accessible by the spectacular path along the vertical rock face and by an outdoor open lift, the Hammetschwand Elevator.The new lift was opened in 1905. It whisks passengers 153 meters up to the summit of the Hammetschwand in less than one minute. It was regarded as a pioneering feat in those days and is still the number one as Europe's longest exterior lift.
