The Axenstrasse is an 11.4-kilometre-long (7.1 mi) segment of the A4 motorway and European route E41 between the resort of Brunnen in the Canton of Schwyz, to the municipality of Flüelen in the Canton of Uri in Central Switzerland. The road is built along steep cliffs on the east side of Lake Lucerne, weaving through many rock fall galleries and tunnels along its route. Upon completion in 1865, the Axenstrasse was the first way to get to Uri that did not involve navigating Lake Lucerne.
