Everyone had a great time and we are definitely repeating next spring. The team was very friendly and fun to flight with. We were a little nervous at the beginning but once we were on the air we forgot and just enjoyed this amazing experience.

It was my first paragliding flight and I simply loved it...everything was perfect. Dani was the pilot and he really did a great job: extremely professional, confident and friendly. I enjoyed every single moment, take off and landing extremely and unexpacted easy. The location was amazing with a breathetaking view on the lake and the Mountains. A unique way to enjoy this wonderful piece of Switzerland.
I am sure I will do it again soon. Thanks Dani!!!

we went in the afternoon, on a sunny and still a snowy day
all was perfect - the climbing route is spectacular, with astonishing wiews, the hotel and restaurant at the top are fine, but find out how is the weather at the top BEFORE climbing on it, because if it is not clear...

The Glasi is the perfect destination for families and glass enthusiasts alike. The products of Glasi Hergiswil are available at selected retailers, directly at the Glasi Hergiswil, or in the Glasi-WebShop. We also offer custom designs according to individual needs.

Reviewed By Swissbulgarican - Lausanne, Switzerland

We absolutely loved our visit to Glasi Hergiswil. While we know the area very well, we had never visited the factory or done the tour. We were impressed with the organized, informative visit which can be fun for the whole family.
Tours are self-guided or in groups; you sign up for a tour in your preferred language and then move through each of the rooms as an audio explanation explains the history of the factory and glass making in Switzerland. Displays and dioramas are detailed: the tour ends with a birds-eye view overlooking the glass blowing room where visitors can watch the glass blowers shaping, blowing, and putting glass into the massive ovens. Super interesting to see!
The building next store contains various interactive exhibits, looking at the science and history behind glass construction and glass shaping/contours.
Make a stop here on the Lake Lucerne - a lovely little outing for young and old!

Pilatus Bahnen AG

Reviewed By Hermes_NL - The Hague, The Netherlands

As part of the so-called Golden Roundtrip, we took the Aerial Cable way first from Kriens (with stops at Krienseregg and Frakmuntegg) and then the Panorama Gondolas to the summit of Mount Pilatus. The round trip is then continued by a descent from the mountain by the Cogswhell Railway (steepest in the world) and a boat ride to Lucerne, followed by a busride on Bus 1 from Lucerne to Kriens.
Parking in Kriens at the Cable way station is easy and at 5 CHF for the day, much cheaper than in Lucerne. You can buy the ticket for the Golden roundtrip in Kriens at the ticket office for a cool CHF 106.
The Cable cars leave as a continuous process - the Panoramic Gondolas however every 15 minutes and can be full with a maximum of 51 passengers.

Lake Luzern

Reviewed By NearlyFamous - UK

Historically insightful. Makes me want to stop at other locations. Audio guide was good, very swish boat (Saphir), built locally. Simple to book. Bürgenstock resort history slightly incomplete, missed the chance for a celebrity moment - Sophia Loren and Audrey Hepburn lived there! Plus the external lift built into the mountain is Europe’s highest. It’s cool.

If you need a warm welcome, a stylish Bar with excellenct Drinks in a quit surrounding, then you have definitely to visit the new Barrock Music Bar. It's located only 5 min. from busy Lucerne in Kriens.

The Owners are very friendly, always open to take some suggestions and try out new Drink's. Barrock is a smoker's Bar - so you can keep your cigarettes or cigars easily with you :)

We walked like 4 hours around town. Arrived on train. The city starts there. Cobblestone streets. Friendly people. Always willing to help. Very clean. Just a typical old Swiss town. Right out of a fairytale.

The Rosengart Collection

The private collection of Lucerne art dealer Angela Rosengart is open to the public since spring 2002. Over 200 important paintings and drawings by more than twenty world famous 19th and 20th century masters (Cezanne, Monet, Matisse, Picasso, Klee, Miro and many others) are on display in a neo-classical building specially remodelled for this purpose. Near the railway station.

Reviewed By Puttmans - Aveley, United Kingdom

We visited the Rosengart exhibition with the impression of being blown away by Picasso's artwork, and whilst it was stunning the thing that really took us was the great set of photographs on display of Picasso taken by David Douglas Duncan which showed the great man off at work and at play...dancing in his underpants. The black and white shots really relayed the mans character and soul. We were not so taken by the Paul Klee works, but that's just a personal opinion and we are all entitled to those. Not expensive to get in, you can utilise a cloak room and there are a limited amount of lockers should you wish to store your things. Toilet facilities are available but no cafe and a small shop in the entrance part of the building. The building itself was lovely with high ceilings and good light. A nice time had by both.

Swiss Museum of Transport

Switzerland’s most-visited museum is a place to experience the history of road-, rail, water- and air-borne mobility, as well as that of space travel. Its interactive attractions are sure to win you over – whatever the weather. Switzerland’s largest cinema screen in the Filmtheatre presents documentary films in XXL format. Meanwhile, the country’s largest, most modern Planetarium offers 360-degree flights to the stars. The Media World is where you’ll unearth new communication trends. And discover how famous Swiss chocolate is made from cocoa beans at the Swiss Chocolate Adventure visitor experience.

Reviewed By Nany O

This museum is a really nice spot if you want to have a different day. You can enjoy activities for separate. Like the chocolate Lindt experience, or the museum itself or the Planetarium. Even they have packages that are better if you want to save a bit of money, combined with the museum visit. I visited the Chocolate tour. It was very dinamic and entertaining. But definitely will come back to check the other attractions!
