      Getting to Pilatus

      Lucerne Apr 24, 2015 at 5:29 AM

      Hi!

      I'm gonna travel to Luzern in mid-May. I find the top of Pilatus is worth visiting.

      So, what is the best way to get there? I found two ways — the first one is a cogwheel train, the second is a cableway.

      The train seems to me very amazing and its Alpnachstad station is in good location. But according to the prices it costs 72 CHF, which is very expensive. Or it worth? But every 10th ticket is free of charge (so, how it works?). Also the train is out of service now. I wonder to know when it will be launched. In this case, the cheapest way is to take the cableway from Fräkmüntegg station for 32 CHF. The problem is that I have a car. So, is there a parking to leave it near Fräkmüntegg station?

      Guys, I need any suggestions and recommendations from you. Maybe you advise smth else...

      Thank you! Danke schön! Merci beaucoup! Grazie!

    • Hotel parking

      Lucerne Apr 6, 2015 at 3:25 AM

      Hi,

      Most hotels I've been looking at in the center of Lucerne say "self-parking." However, some have "self-parking for 18 euros with in-out privileges".

      I've been assuming the first one means having to go to a parking lot, but am wondering if the second one means a parking lot associated with the hotel in some way?

      Can anyone help? My hotel is located on Bruchstrasse, not too far from the lake.

    • Basel - Solving a Dilemma

      by panos521 Online Now Jan 15, 2013 at 5:43 AM

      Hello dear travellers,

      I am Panos. In the mid-June I am thinking of going with my wife to Basel, Switzerland. We are thinking of spending almost one week. Since I am map lover, I started checking the map and realized that Basel is a great spot in the middle of Europe, from where one can see not only one country but 3 at the same time (Switzerland, France and Germany).
      So, right now I have a dilemma on how to spend my days in Basel. Should I stay one or two days there and then go to Munich or to Strasbourg (France).
      Also, I would like to visit Zurich (does it worth it?)
      So, what do you suggest me to do? Spend all the days in Switzerland or divide them by going to France or Germany?

      Finally, in order to help you with your proposal, I would like to say that me and my wife love mainly historical places (medieval), baroque and Gothic buildings and also.. good food! :)

      I hope my information was enough and those of you that have seen all the above places could propose to us a great option.

      Looking forward to your reply,

      Best Regards,
      Panos

She cannot walk very well, so we plan to park our car outside the centre and take a taxi from the parking lot to the entrance of the museum. I know there is good public transport, but she cannot manage that, a car is much easier for her.
      What's a good place to park and get a taxi?
