Spent 5+ hours taking the boat to Alpnachstadt (the lake is stunningly beautiful on a fine summer day), the cogwheel train up the mountain (quite an experience), having lunch (good for a cafeteria but typically expensive), walking about on the various short trails (the best is quite level), and taking the gondola and cable car down the other side to catch the bus back to Lucerne. All together a great day.

We took the cog railway (steepest in the world @ 48 degrees) up to the top for a walk around the trail that circles the peak, but the clouds rolled in and the view got limited. The cog trains were disappointing as I had expected an engine pushing the carriages, but it really didn't look any different from any of the other funiculars we had been on. In addition, we only paid 1/2 price due to our Swiss Travel Pass (highly recommend) but even that was 36 CHF each.

Take the train up to top admiring an Perfect Swiss landscape on the side of the mountain.
Spend time at the top admiring the amazing scenery, the Alpine horn player, the climb to the summit, and the dragon tunnel caves. Learn the legend of "Dragon Mountain."
Then take the cable car down for a thrilling view as you descend. On the lower cars you can hear the cowbells from the Brown Swiss cowas grazing the mountain meadows.

The cog railway is a whole different experience. The carriage is open sided and each one quite small as it makes its way slowly up the mountain Lake Lucerne looks smaller and smaller. The views going up are breath taking. At the top there is a hotel and places too buy food. The views from the top are amazing. We came down in a cable car part way and then changed into a. gondola. It was fun and well worth the trip.

She is very professional, friendly , well-mannered, and has great dominion and knowledge of the region. Congratulations for having such an amazing employee. People like Stephanie and Edmundo make a company prestigious.
