    Lusern and Mount Rigi

    May 16, 2019 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 4 °C

    Had a great day. I left the bike at Google and went on a train to Lusern then a ferry boat for an hour to the foot of Mount Rigi, then a cog railway which climbed very steeply up the mountain for around 40 minutes. We were above the clouds at the top. Beautiful. The we walked down for 40 minutes and caught a different train and had a walk around Lusern.
    More walking after another train to Zurich as we went to Google to dry my washing as they have facilities for the staff. At the end of a tiring day we had walked over 23000 steps. Over 11 miles. The day finished with a lovely self service Italian meal. Followed by renting a couple of electric assisted bicycles to ride back to Google and pick up my washing.

    Lovely place, Luzern - we haven't been for several years, which is too long. Your photos look as if you did most of the sights while you were there., and as if you enjoyed it. Sally

    Luzern was where I went on my first trip abroad as a young teenager and the friends I made there are still part of my world. Great place. J.

    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 ...

    Train to Mount Rigi

    June 21, 2016 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    Sunny day perfect for a trip up Mount Rigi, via the ferry from Lucerne to Vitznau. The Rigi cog railway takes 40 minutes giving beautiful views over the lake and white capped mountains, dense forested slopes, past a field of pretty cows with their neck bells clanging, past a swiss chalet, the aroma of freshly mown grass. View from the summit are once again spectacular, with the Alps in the distance. Lots of red benches to sit and bask in the hot sun, even at 6000ft altitude. . Such a wonderful and easy trip to take from Lucerne, and get the full on Swiss experience.Read more
