Luzern Day 5

heading up the Rigi

Day 5 was first marked by tiredness - back by the lake the night was hot and we had a friendly mosquito or two...
Breakfast outside the hotel overlooking the lake and then by boat across the lake to Vitznau and then on the railway to the summit of Rigi. A pleasant day walking around the summits - unfortunately the clouds moved in so the views were not as impressive as they might have been. Snacks at the Rigi summit and then in the afternoon at Klöster. I'd recommend going to Känzeli earlier than we arrived when there was lots of haze -- it was also a tough final ascent to the Edelweiss Hotel - yet another Edelweiss - at Staffelhöhe. Very comfortable, room with a balcony where we could see the lake - this time well out of mosquito range. A quiet evening eating at the hotel
