Flat in Sachseln, Switzerland

Sachseln is a quiet village in the middle of Switzerland with about 5500 inhabitants. We live in a new apartment in the centre of the village, only two minutes from the railway station, 150 from the lake and you have a nice view to the mountains and over the lake of Sarnen. It's a 35 minutes car drive to Luzern and 25 by train.
Despite its size, Sachseln offers a varied palette of leisure activities that involve the surrounding mountains and the lake: surfing, rowing, hiking, biking, mountain-biking, in-line skating, mini-golfing, and playing tennis or badminton.
The village itself offers several pleasant restaurants. Because of Sachseln’s central location, there are many excursion possibilities.

The Älggi Alp is the very middle of Switzerland. It can be reached via Sachseln by car, on foot or by mountain bike.
On the occasion of its 150th anniversary in 1988, the Federal Office for National Topography, swisstopo, used the Swiss national boundaries that had just been digitised to calculate the centre of gravity of the country. If you stuck a map of Switzerland on a piece of card and cut round the borders, this is the point where it would balance on the tip of a needle.
In reality, this point is on top of a cliff to the west of Chli Älggi (the community of Sachseln). That's why the point was shifted 500 m to the south-east, to an easily accessible and extremely scenic location. The point is now well-signposted in the area.
The Älggi Alp is ideal for a walk with the family or a hike. At 1650 m, the scene is one of attractive meadows and pastureland, forests and cliffs, a mountain restaurant, a little lake and various little waterfalls.

The highest mountain is the Hochstollen (2481 m.a.s.l.) where you can walk on a foothpath from the Ällgi Alp or from Meiringen-Hasliberg.

The nearby mountain areas of Melchsee-Frutt, Meiringen-Hasliberg and Engelberg offer everything hikers, bikers, mountain-bikers, skiers, fishermen and mountain climbers could wish for.
