Day 16-19 – Bauen and Lake Luzern

Day 16-19 We have our post trip relaxing time on Lake Luzern.

Our time here will be relaxing. the only thing we must do is bring food from town before getting on the ferry. There are two Restaurants in Bauen but no groceries. We can pick between Mirgo’s, Vogl or Coop to shop. Bringing everything. for at least a day or 2, we will be on the ferry again during our stay and can restock.

Trips are open to whatever people want to do. I suggest we go to Weggis or Vitznau and take the mountain train up one of the Rigi peaks: Rigi Rotstock, Rigi First or Rigi Scheidegg. Or a day trip into beautiful Luzern. We can also explore the historical area on the point just North of Bauen.

“Rütli (German pronunciation: [ˈryːtli]) or Grütli (French: [ɡʁytli]; Italian: [ˈɡrutli]) is a mountain meadow on Lake Lucerne, in the Seelisberg municipality of the Swiss canton of Uri. It is the site of the Rütlischwur in traditional Swiss historiography, the oath marking the foundation of the original Swiss Confederacy. As such it is treated as a national monument of Switzerland. Since 1860, the Schweizerische Gemeinnützige Gesellschaft (SGG) has organized a celebration at the site on Swiss National Day (1 August), since 1994 recognized as a public holiday.” Wiki

Or just relax and swim in the Lake it is chilly though…. 19 to 23 deg C., the mid to high 60’s F.

Accommodations: Airbnb Bauen $154/night…4 nights at the lake in a house.
