The community is located on the outskirts of Lucerne on the Horwer peninsula. It covers the base of Mt. Pilatus.
In the modern centre of the village is the start of the 10k. The Horw peninsula, with the districts of Kastanienbaum and St. Niklausen, also belongs to the community. The peninsula offers fantastic views of the mountains and the lake, which is one of the famoust parts of the race course. Celebrities like DJ Bobo appreciate these aspects as well and therefore live here. Further informations: www.horw.ch.
