The views are breathtaking! Like many others, we took the ride on Lake Lucerne, up on the cogwheel train, but the gondola/cable car portion was closed for repairs, But, still great views on the water and then from the top of the mountain. Have some wine, take some photos, and savor the memories. Hikers can climb up and down or ride up and climb down, several combinations offered. Allow about 3 hours and 100CHF.
