Video: Ski trip to Klewenalp Stockhütte

Days are getting shorter and shorter and temperatures are slowly, but steadily dropping. Winter is well on its way to the Northern hemisphere. I’m already dreaming about snowy sunny winter days at the ski slopes. While counting the days till then, I’m reminiscing about my past ski trips, more precisely about one particular trip – trip to Klewenalp Stockhütte in Central Switzerland where I’ve skied on a sunny day in March.

Mt Pilatus hike

Like every year in the summer, my husband’s parents came to visit us in Lucerne. Because they recently got crazy about hiking, their visit was supposed to be a series of hiking trips around Swiss Alps. Unfortunately due to the rainy weather, we’ve only managed to do one hiking trip. This was the trip to Pilatus, Lucerne’s home mountain.

Meggenhorn Castle

Meggenhorn Castle is a lovely 17th century castle located on the peninsula of Meggen on the northern shore of the Vierwaldstättersee (Lake Lucerne). It is one of my favourite places in Luzern area. The estate has been open for public since 1974 and has no entrance fee. It’s scenic and peaceful spot, popular with the locals, but not yet discovered by the masses of tourists.

Summer evening in Luzern

Few days ago, when the sunny weather and summer temperatures finally reached Switzerland, I went for an evening cycle ride around Lucerne. Despite I already walked and cycled those areas many times before, I massively enjoyed the ride. It was great to rediscover the beauty of the place I now call home on such a lovely evening.

Hope you’ll enjoy the photos I took during my ride as much as I enjoyed making them.

Lake Lucerne or Vierwaldstättersee as it is called in German is the fourth largest lake in Switzerland.

Lake Lucerne’s Beaches: Strandbad Tribschen

Luzern is located by the Lake Lucerne (Vierwaldstättersee). In the hot summer, as is this year’s, is the perfect spot to cool down. There are many public beaches all around the lake. Some are free of charge, while others charge entrance fee. Strandbad Tribschen is one of those who charge entrance fee. For a fee of 5 CHF (adult), you can enter the area and use the facilities: children’s pool, showers, dressing rooms, bar, football and volleyball fields, etc. For additional fee, you can borrow the sports equipment (e.g. sup, boat).
