This was a fabulous excursion for me at 78 years old and for my granddaughter at 19 years old. The ride up in the gondolas provided extraordinarily beautiful views – absolutely stunning. We ate lunch at the hotel. The food was excellent. We noticed that many folks brought picnic lunches which looked like a fun option. Going down the other side of the mountain on the cog railway was an equally beautiful experience. The final leg on the boat to go back to Lucerne was a relaxing and beautiful trip. This is truly an adventure for all age groups.
Was a wonderful experience. So easy to do, merely book on line, take a bus, a few minutes later go to the departure point ( we went from Kriens) and go up with the cable car. Must add that the weather plays a big role. If there are too much wind on the mountain or on the way there, the service could be cancelled for the day. That means you are not going up. But the next day may be fine and there will be no problem if you ticket was for the day before. Great restaurants and other sight seeing on the mountain, an experience never to forget!!
Check on line early in the morning whether the journey will be possible due to weather conditions, specially in winter. Strong winds on the mountain could cause the cable car operators to close it for the day. But you could have a better situation the next day. They will not penalize you if the booking you have is for the previous day. If you do not have another day available, most online bookings could be refunded if you let them know.
Definitely recommend this activity. Phenomenal view of Luzern from the top and extremely easy to get to the hill using public transportation.
A great experience! It was definitely worth it and would recommend it to anyone. I would and most probably will do it again.
