This is the legendary "Ray of Hope", a mysterious lighting that illuminated the area around Mt. Stanserhon during summer nights until the sixties.
The spotlight was literraly looking for guests, a memorable Stanserhorn promotion activity:

The people strolling along the Lake of Luzern were astonished of this spotlight, and wondered where it was coming from. The initiators and promoters(Bucher & Durrer) had attained their goal. More and more guests became attracted and visited the mountain.

The spotlight was destroyed during the fire night in 1970 and due to lack of funds a new one was not possible. But the old tradition was revived in 1993 and the lighting carries on around Lucerne area.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
