Fluelen

(4/5 based on a few reviews for 1 attraction)
Flüelen is a municipality in the canton of Uri in Switzerland.HistoryFlüelen is first mentioned in 1266 as Vluolon.Flüelen formed an important transshipment point on Switzerland's transport system for many centuries, and at least since the opening of the first track across the Gotthard Pass in 1230. The various routes across the pass reached Lake Lucerne at Flüelen, and until the latter half of the 19th century the lake provided the best onward link to the cities of northern Switzerland.In 1906, the Altdorf–Flüelen tramway was constructed to connect the centre of Altdorf with Fluelen railway station. The electric tramway operated until 1951, when it was replaced by a bus service.GeographyFlüelen has an area, as of 2006, of 12.4km2. Of this area, 22% is used for agricultural purposes, while 55.1% is forested. Of the rest of the land, 6.1% is settled (buildings or roads) and the remainder (16.8%) is non-productive (rivers, glaciers or mountains). In the 1993/97 land survey, 49.0% of the total land area was heavily forested, while 0.1% is covered in small trees and shrubbery. Of the agricultural land, 0.2% is used for farming or pastures, while 6.8% is used for orchards or vine crops and 15.0% is used for alpine pastures. Of the settled areas, 2.3% is covered with buildings, 0.8% is industrial, 0.2% is classed as special developments, 0.5% is listed as parks and greenbelts and 2.4% is transportation infrastructure.
