Luzern, Switzerland, Day 2



The Luzern youth hostel had breakfast facility. We had breakfast and started with second day in Luzern. Our Swiss Rail pass was starting from the second day, so we had decided to avail cruise in Luzern and train services form second day.
Cruising in Lake Luzern

Rigi Village

Ropeway to Mount Rigi

Mount Rigi & Scenic Train


Lunch:

We ate at the restaurant
at top of Mount Rigi. There were not many options available. We tried Hot dog and Tomato and Basil pasta.

Downhill to Rigi Village:

We had to take train back to the station where the ropeway left us. Took Rope way and reached the village. On the return journey, we were more strategic and managed to grab corner seat to get the best view. Thus the unplanned visit to Mount Rigi was a real surprise for us.

Cruise back to Luzern City:

We had to rush to the Luzern city centre to catch panoramic train to Interlaken at 4 o clock in the evening. Our luggage was lying in the Hostel and we had to rush back to the hostel to collect it. We could have managed the entire thing more efficiently by keeping the luggage in the Luggage deposit lockers at the station.

Recommendations: There are many other activities and small villages or mountain peaks to explore in the area around the Luzern Lake. For more information, I would recommend you to explore the available options at the tourist information desk at the station.

We were all set to enjoy the scenic Swiss beauty in the panaromic train.
