... and very quite.  Instead of a clunk, clunk over the pylons there was a smooth looping glide as we swung over and down again.  A very weird sensation.  The views of course were spectacular.  We had some sunny breaks while were on top, but couldn't see all that far over the Alps due to cloud.  But given the amount of rain they have in the area we were lucky to see anything at all.    Had lunch and a coffee at the top - German Sausage and ...

For the evening we had a bit of culture by going to the Stadtkeller Swiss Folklore restaurant. Had a really nice meal with the show in swiss traditional costumes of yodelling, blowing of the big alphorns, and good music in general.

    Hotel is extremely well located ( 5 min walk from the railway station, very easy to find).

    Great Staff, extremely friendly and helpful, rooms were nice and cosy, not very modern,but with every thing you need. A big plus is as well the free tea and coffee provided in the rooms.

    Breakfast was very good ( loads of swiss cheese, juice, fruit, bread etc).

    Would definatly book there again
