After leaving behind Germany, we went to the impressive Swiss and we see that they graze several cows in open pastures. Frontier with Switzerland, the beautiful waterfalls of Schaffhausen. I love the intimate experience of the impressive Rheinfall, Europe's largest waterfall. In view of the falls, we inevitably brought ashore by the hordes of tourists both approaching angle margins looking for their cameras. It is a boat that takes us on this stone in the middle of cases. The performance of the constant flow of water to the roar is incredible, but the view is very scary!
We drove to Lucerne, a picturesque town in Switzerland and the test at the Art Nouveau Hotel Terrence. It is located in a majestic mountain landscape, is a landmark in the Engelberg, a beautiful traditional Swiss village. The new free tunnel system in the hotel comes from the village to the Terrace Hotel in just three minutes. The hotel has a very innovative way to reach the lobby through two tunnels and elevators. Fresh mountain air, beautiful panoramic views of the Titlis of clouds and the town of Engelberg, at the foot of the mountain surrounded by the frozen night is something that can not be described in words.
The day dawns next and we go to the mountain. Titlis for a ride on Ice Flyer. But unfortunately it was not! Because of bad weather, travel up the mountain. Titlis is canceled. Soon our tour manager managed to lift our spirits and decided to go to the mountain. Pilatus. The top of the mountain. Pilatus from Lucerne can be reached by a cable car and funicular. From Kriens, a suburb of Lucerne, four gondolas "Panorama" lead us through the Krien canopies through Fräkmüntegg where we transferred to a large cable car leading to the upper station. It takes about five minutes Fräkmüntegg to the top of Pilatus, the As the gondola moves tight up, dense pine forests smell the air and, in the distance, the peaks of the Rocky Mountains shrink to sharp and jagged peaks, while nearby, is All grass at an altitude of 2132 meters .. We enjoyed the view of the panorama gondola and cable car and we are totally impressed by the spectacular view on the snow, the mountainous regions of Switzerland
The most impressive moment is the moment you climb up to the highest peak of the mountain. Pilatus. It wow you raised a feeling! Excited was we grabbed a unique experience and snow peaks everywhere and all together and up the stairs. The cold wind hits us and we cling to our hats and our sunglasses burns, we see the bright sun penetrating our eyes! We could not stay two minutes ago so it took hastily a few shots on the playing field in Europe, the pretty swiss almost! However, it is an unforgettable experience. There is plenty to do at Pilatus, posing beyond the obvious for beautiful pictures with large, snow-capped mountains in the background. "On top of the Pilatus-Kulm Hotel, the protected cultural heritage a large terrace with sun loungers and an elegant atmosphere. We have a wonderful view over the Swiss Alps, while a cup of hot chocolate in the cafe has that while some prefer ice in this atmosphere.
Riding the gondola up the mountain is another highlight of this wonderful experience. We slid gently rolling over the fields of wildflowers, green hills and dramatic mountain edges with a beautiful view of the city and the almost enchanting lake. How do you think things can not be better to be the jingle of rattles listening deep down the grass below. We see the magnificent cattle shook their heads, their jaws with fresh and tasty pastures, the dream of the delicious Toblerone chocolate!

Lucerne, the gateway to central Switzerland, embodies the image of a Swiss city's history book. The city is rich in fountains, covered bridges, beautiful narrow cobblestone streets, houses with frescoes and slender towers towers .... The mesmerizing snowy Alps rise in the distance and the Pilatus and Rigi mountains cover the south gate of the city. It takes some time to actually dive past the beautiful portrait and if that is the case, it is difficult to get rid of your magic.
