The Bürgenstock Funicular, Europe’s first electric funicular, was inaugurated in 1888. 1905 saw the opening of the Cliff Walk, a path among the face of the mountain. The Hammetschwand Lift, the highest outdoor elevator in Europe, commenced operations that same year, too.

These included stars and other notables such as Audrey Hepburn and Mel Ferrer (who held their wedding at the resort in 1954), Charlie Chaplin, Sophia Loren and Carlo Ponti, Sean Connery, Pandit Nehru, first prime minister of India, and his daughter Indira Gandhi and many more.
