Beckenried Overview

Beckenried is a municipality in the Swiss canton Nidwalden. Being on the shore of the Vierwaldstattersee, it´s perfectly situated with a breathtaking view where ever you are in the village. In 2003 its population counted 2009.

Beckenried, with two exits starting from the A2 is easy to reach because of its central location to the highway. Despite active building activity in the last years Beckenried could maintain its rural character. All along the shore of Lake Lucerne you´ll find the terraces of the hotels, directly at the lake, and it´s easy to enjoy a cosy diner. The people are very friendly and hospitality seems to come natural.

Beckenried provides with an aerial tramway up the Klewenalp. It´s a major holiday resort in summer (hiking and biking) and winter (skiing).
