From Zürich, I ventured an hour out of the city to Lake Lucerne. Two years previous to this trip, I stayed on Mt Rigi for a few nights. I highly recommend booking at Hotel Edelweiss Rigi – family run for four generations now. Only available in the winter months, the magical cottage is propped up 3,598 meters above sea level, and is something I will never forget. Edelweiss is home to the most friendly staff, a restaurant downstairs and panoramic views of the famous Swiss Alps.
