Всем привет! В этом влоге беру вас с собой в Golden Round Trip - однодневное путешествие, которое мы совершили в честь Дня рождения мужа. Лодка, поезд, канатная дорога за один день, невероятные виды и море впечатлений! Lucerne-Mt.Pilatus-Lucerne
Absolutely advised! For information visit https://www.lakelucerne.ch/en/offers/excursions/pilatus-golden-round-trip/
This is a wonderful trip to make on your own or with your family/friends. Absolutely a must! You can go in both directions - starting by bus and coming back by boat/rail to Lucerne or the opposite direction.
We took a boat from Lucerne to Alpnachstad (90 minutes). You can sit both inside and outside enjoying magnificent views of and around Vierwaldstaettersee, have a snack and adrink at the bar.
Upon arrival to Alpnachstad we took the cogwheel train up to Mt.Pilatus (40 minutes) There is a chance of waiting time (sometimes up to 1hr as the wagons go either all up or down at the same time). There are few wagons going up at the same time (independently of each other), each takes around 40 passengers (compartments of 8 sits). Try to take a place by the window on the lake side and in the first or the last compartment of the wagon - this way you can observe both - the lake and the route (up or down).
Make sure to check weather forecast and bring coats/hats/trousers in case you travel with kids as it can be quite chilly on Mt.Pilatus (We experienced going from 26 C to 13 C and it was not that pleasant). The top of the mountain offers valley views as well as of the lake and the city of Lucerne (when sky is clear). There are few places to eat, a hotel, a bar with snacks and other facilities/
Starting your way back to Lucerne you will first take a short ride on the *dragon* cable car to Fraekmuentegg (1416m) where you change to a smaller gondola. This station offers a climbing and rope park for all ages and lots or hiking routes.
Gondola will take you down to Kriens via an optional stop at Krieseregg (1026m) Krienseregg has a wonderful big playground for different ages, long covered slide, tables and sits as well as bbq spots. The area around is great for hiking (also with younger kids), there are few round hiking routes of various length and difficulty in the middle of Alpine meadows and forests. Along the routes you will also find bbq spots as well as information about the area with interesting facts. There are also two restaurants at the station (one directly nearby and another one accessible in a short walk)
If you want to go from Fraekmuentegg directly to Kriens, just remain in gondola.
Follow blue *Lucerne* signs strategically located every 50m to arrive from Kriens gondola station to the bus stop. Bus nr 1 will take you to your departure point in Lucerne within 10-15 minutes.
Overall impression: Exceeding the ticket price! =)) (We actually came to Krienseregg the day after again to prolong our hiking joy and playground experience)
Take your best mood with you!
Check and prepare for possible weather changes.
Have something with you if you get sea sick (or choose the rail option on Lucerne-Alpnachstad part)
Have cameras and phones charged and with memory cards!
At the same time take a chance to enjoy peaceful moments, hike and breath in lake and mountain air.
Bring water and snacks (if you are on a budget - your lunch too)
Wear comfortable clothes and shoes.
Wear sun-block if applicable!
