    Rigi - Panorama Trail

    June 7, 2017 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    On our third day we woke up early to catch the train to Lucerne where we got on a boat to Küssnacht. From there we took the train again to get to Weggis where we were able to take the Gondola/Cable car up to the Rigi Kulm Peak!

    Amazing! A bit chilly and windy but who cares if you have this view?!

    We took the Panorama trail to Rigi Scheidegg and on our way we passed many cows and nice huts! The view was (again) fantastic and breathtaking and I'm glad that the pictures turned out so well :)
    We actually planned to take the gondola there to get back to Weggis, but when we arrived late in the afternoon the lady at the little shop just laughed at us and said that the gondola just closed for repairs .... and then she said that the last gondola down goes within the next hour from a station which is about an hour away from there.

    My mom and me just looked at each other .... having totally different reactions to the situation ... me: laughing and thinking how funny life can be sometimes and my mom: freaking out because she didn't expect us to be at the gondola in time and being afraid that we have to walk aaaall the way down to the bottom.
    While we were "running" to the next station I told her that it could be worse but she was totally in her zone :-D
    We made it back in time and everything was good (what else??) and we enjoyed our boat ride watching the sun setting over the lake and the mountains ...
