Trip Report Springtime in Luzern (& Rigi, Basel, Zofingen, Rapperswil...)

Jump to last reply

Back one week now from a 10-day trip, using Luzern and Hotel Weisses Kreuz as my base.

Normally I rent vacation apartments in lesser-known towns, but this trip was to 'feed my soul' with familiar regions and at a slower pace than usual, anticipating some big career changes when I returned to the US.
The plane was only about 60% full, giving me the center 3 seats all to myself! First time in decades that I curled up and actually slept more than a catnap! Good omen?!

This is my ?8th or 9th trip to Switzerland, but I haven't gone so early in spring since high school. With a job transition looming, it was now or never.

The weather for the first week was beautiful-sunny and mid-60's to low 70's.
Outdoor spaces were filled with Swiss and tourists soaking up the fine rays.
