Help us choose a panoramic easy hike between Lucerne & Brienz

Hi All,

As some of you will remember from my last post, I will be travelling to Switzerland towards the end of this month with my wife and my parents (in late 60s). We will be staying in Lucerne and will be taking day trips around that region.

We arrive on Wednesday night and leave on Sunday afternoon for our 4pm flight from Zurich. Sunday morning we intend to spend in Lucerne and that leaves us 3 full days for day trips. We have already decided to visit Mt. Rigi on one day and Titlis- Engelberg on the other. We will be doing some easy short hikes on both these days – Rigi Kulm to Kaltabd on Rigi trip and Trubsee or Brunnipfad on Engelberg trip. However, it’s the third day which I have not been able to firm up my mind.

We would like to do some short and scenic hiking on this day as well and therefore I have discounted the excursions to Mt. Pilatus and Stanserhorn. I think 90 mins is about maximum I would be keen to travel by train/ship/bus away from Lucerne and therefore I have following options:

1. Klewenalp – Stockhutte hike: However, am not sure if it would be similar views as Mt. Rigi hike. Also, this looks like a half day excursion unless we go to Seelisberg but travelling back from Trieb is too time consuming.
2. Seelisberg – Bauen hike: Biggest challenge with this hike is steep descent from Wyssig to Bauen. Other doubts I have are the same as ones above which are similar views like rigi hike and also similar boat trips etc.
3. Brienzer Rothorn – Schonbuel Hike: This looks like a good day trip in a different region however am a little uneasy with the walk gradient as it has several ascents and descents and as we are not experienced hikers therefore if these are challenging sections then it would not prove to be a pleasant day out for us
4. Brunig-Hasliberg - Hasliberg Reuti Panormaweg & combine it with a visit to Aare Gorge: While I understand panormaweg a relatively easy hike but am unsure if it is scenic enough as it’s relatively low level walk. Also, is it worth the time and effort to get here.

So will appreciate if you could advise us on which of these walks offer best views or any other suggestion where we can have a relatively nice walk with great alpine views (e.g. First-Bachalpsee and mannlichen to kleine scheidegg hikes we took in wengen area couple of years back which are our great favourites)

Thanks in advance
