Chapel Bridge, Luzern

We traveled on the gondola and cogtrain up the Rigi Mountain the next morning. It was nice to see the small towns on the way up and the views of the lake and surrounding mountains were amazing. Until we got to the top. Then the clouds began to rise and visibility was limited. We hiked around for a while and finally gave up and went back down the mountain. Had lunch in Weggis at a tea room that had a terrace on the lake. Sorry, but I can't remember the name - but I think it is the only tea room attached to a bakery that sits along the lake. It was the only reasonably priced place we found in Weggis and the view was awesome.

On Wednesday we took the boat into Luzern for the day. The boat ride was relaxing and the views were lovely. Taking the boat was more convenient than trying to find parking if we had driven. We really enjoyed Luzern, the Chapel Bridge, the painted buildings, the old town and the river. We had lunch at the restaurant of Hotel Schiff. I had fish (again) and Dennis had sausage and potatoes (again). It was quite good but the price was almost 70CHF, so we really noticed the increase in meal prices from the Jungfrau region.

We caught the late afternoon boat back to Weggis, then sat on our front porch watching the sunset. We both were beginning to feel the effects of all our efforts to see as much as we could during our stay in Switzerland.
