This museum contained an incredible number of expert masterpieces (Picasso, Matisse, Cezanne, Renoir, Pissaro etc etc). We loved it. It was a manageable size gallery and we loved it.

A small but very interesting exhibition. A lot of work by Picasso, not my favourite artist but it was still good to see more of his work. Some really lovely impressionist artworks by Renoir, Pissarro and others - these really made the exhibition for me....More

This small museum is the private collection of Angela Rosengart. She is the subject of a number of paintings by Picasso. So this small collection has a very personal touch. If you love Picasso, Klee, and their contemporaries, then you’ll really enjoy this. We had...More

This collection was unexpectedly excellent. They have a 35 minute video which is worth watching to learn how the family put together their collection, describing their friendship with many famous artists like Picasso. A gem for art lovers.

There are some good collections of art here, all collected by one lady who knew a number of artists and purchased their work for her own home. The short video is very well worth watching as it provides the history behind the collection. A good...More

Please help give feedback: 10 day itinerary in Switzerland (7 Replies)
Hi friends,  I will be traveling with my mother to Switzerland from 18 Feb-1 March 2013.  This is our first trip to Switzerland. What we'd like to do is a bit of everything that's Switzerland is famed for: the snow covered mountain, the boat cruise, hiking, museums, in a relaxed pace. My mother's not keen on strenuous activity. So if we do some hiking, we'd like to do an easy one.  Please help give feedback on this itinerary. All suggestions are gladly welcomed....More

Lucerne Day Trip (3 Replies)
Hi, we're planning for a day trip to Lucerne (from Zurich) in July-end - the intent is 3-fold, viz. the ride up to Mount Rigi, to visit Rosengart Collection & to walk around the Lucerne Old Town. While the 3rd item is easy to fit in anywhere as we like, we're a bit confused about what sequence to follow for the 1st two, and hence would be great if we can get some suggestions. The previous night we'll reaching to Zurich after a long flight, and hence we might not be able to start very...More

I would keep the Rigi for the end. Then do not return back to Luzern, but just travel directly from Rigi Kulm back to Zürich via Arth Goldau.

Q1: Yes, you can buy it at the airport railway station. As the tell pass website says: The pass is available from any manned Swiss Federal Railways Station. That includes the airport station. Q2: You take the train and buy a ticket all the way to Zug. Again you can do this at the airport. Then you just take the train to Luzern. No need to get off in Zug. Q3: Some museum do give you reductions. Q4: Yes. Book Basel - Paris early, and buy a ticket to Basel in Luzern.
