Perfect position on Lake Lucerne
Posted Sep 6, 2016 on Hotels
The hotel is in the perfect position, half way down the lake in the more beautiful southern end. It is less than 10 minutes easy walk to the ferry terminal with hourly ferries in both directions, and the cable car is also nearby. We didn't use our car all week as we used the ferries. There is not much written information in English, so if you don't speak German, do your homework before you go. A must do is the mountain train to Rigi Kulm. You can get the ferry to Vitznau and the train starts from the ferry terminal - cost for 2nd class return for boat + train is about 90 ch ( £69) each. We knew Switzerland was expensive, but ferry trips and all tourist activities are actually VERY expensive, and eating out in tourist areas costs a great deal. As long as you are prepared for that, Lake Lucerne is a stunningly beautiful place to visit. We loved it.
