Day 9 : Mount Stanserhorn Switzerland (22 June 2008)


After a late night in Florence we were only a few tired people at breakfast on Sunday.  After breakfast we were joined by the rest of the group to leave at 7:45 for Switzerland.  It was a long drive of almost 7 hours before reaching Mount Stanserhorn in the Swiss Alps.  Most of the people on the bus were sleeping during the drive.

We boarded a funicular at the bottom of Mount Stanserhorn and it took us to a gondola or cable car to go up the mountain.  The mountain is 1920m above sea level.  Along the way we saw and hear some Swiss cows with bells around their necks.

The view was amazing.  We could see Swiss Alps with snow on the tops and on the other side we saw the blue Lake Lucerne.
 













We walked up to the top of the mountain.  The sun was shining and it was a lovely day.  After about an hour we got back on the gondola and went down the mountain.
