Day 28 and 29 Litchenstein and Lucerne

A travel blog entry by trogncal


... breathtaking mountain scenery to Lucerne. We took a cable car up to the top of Mount Pilatus for amazing views back over Lucerne. Our hotel for the next two nights was a converted jail - we had stayed here on a previous occasion but not in the pokey room we ended up in on this trip where there wasn't even enough space to lay one bag out on the floor.....After dinner in the hotel we walked ...

Swiss Castles

A travel blog entry by cncadventures


... for half a day or so. The boat arrives and we are quickly motored to Hilterfingen where Schloss Hunegg awaits us. It is a 7 minute ride. We can see the Castle on a hill about a half mile away. We walk along the water at first and they have diving platforms that the local kids are jumping off of into the lake. The path leads us away from the water and a short way along the main drag before making the short ascent up. We show our Swiss pass, get a nice written guide in English and ...

The day started off with a delicious breakfast from our now favorite hostel. The hostel cost a little more than the other hostels we have stayed at, but it was worth it. Some of the perks included, free hot drinks from an espresso machine, friendly and helpful staff, showers that had hooks in them (we celebrate the small things), and a location that wasn't down a back alley (that’s looking at you Barcelona). ...

    The balcony view of the lake is fantastic! Small room; sink is behind screen in room. Small bathroom; tiny shower. This is an old building, and the air freshener drove Lois' allergies nuts! Glad we are here only 1 night. Breakfast has a great selection of tea, cereal, meat, cheese but not much else. Brienze is a beautful little town at the end of the lake, and we'd definitely come back here but would not stay at his hotel. From boat dock, it's about a half mile walk to hotel. (TIP: Walk up to sidewalk rather than along gravel lake path if you are pulling luggage)
