... fondue, and a side of rosti. Dad had a tomato soup with some kind of alcohol in it and fondue with mushrooms. My soup was really good, better than the one at the top of Pilatus, lol and Dad said his was good too. When our fondue came, it was indeed only cheese and bread, to my surprise, but a big pot of cheese and a lot of bread at that! We had seen 2 other girls get their fondue and they were both eating from a giant pot, so we thought maybe we should ...
... sauce and Apple strudel with some cups of Swiss hot chocolate. Day 2 Woke up REALLY early to catch the train up Jungfraujoch. Got out for some photo opportunities as the train stopped a few times on the way up. When we finally got to the top it was freezing (to be expected), we walked out onto the snow to get a view of the surrounding mountains. It was amazing, I had never seen snow before so it was fun to have pretend snow fights with ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Alpha Lucerne
When we checked in the hotel seemed to be on a quiet street. However just across the road is an area where local teens congregate at night - on Saturaday night they were yelling and screaming until about 4am. The rooms are hot and stuffy - no A/C or fans so we needed to keep window open - so no sleep for us.Tried to get a room change but although the hotel acknowledged the problem they wouldn't do anything about it. Sunday afternoon was the same (we were trying to catch a nap after the night before) Sunday night was a lot better.
Other than that, good location (10 min walk to the station and town centre) and a good price for Lucerne. But if you want a gaurenteed sleep you may want to try somewhere else....
