Went up to the sky and played in the snow. There were great views rain, snow or shine. I took at least 100 photos on this journey and so will you.

Horrible! We took a little train to go up. The prise is like 68 chf per person. Way too much. And they don't tell you how is the weather on top. Would be great to display like a life TV or at least tell people what the visibility is 0!!! It was very cloudy on top and we had only... More

Highly recommended excursion during your stay in Lucerne. Pick a day that is clear or partly cloudy, otherwise the views from the top would be limited, the views are breath taking.

This is one attraction not to be missed when visiting Lucerne. Just to think that is has been made accessible is a wonder in itself. WE had a fine clear day so was lucky.

This is well worth it. We drove to the lift in Kriegs, about 5 minutes from downtown Lucerne. We arrived around 9am and had no problem finding room in the parking lot, even in touristy August.

Must have been place if in Lucerne. You even can hike up if you are fit and do not fear to fall down.
