Localization of the canton of Obwalden in Switzerland

The old church Lungern is located in the municipality of Lungern in the canton of Obwalden in Switzerland.

Only the tower remains of the former church. During the renovation in 1989, a staircase with 78 steps was built in, and the tower has served as a lookout tower ever since.

The viewing platform provides a view of the Lungerersee and the surrounding mountains Turren, Sädel, Güpfi and Gibel.
