This is anew thread in response to OH Geologist's question.
<<"saw you were just in Weggis...any suggestions on a place to eat (if we don't get to eat up at your friend's hotel near the top of Rigi)?">>
I don't have any good suggestions; in the neighborhood, I always go up to Rigi Kaltbad.
There, my favorite restaurant in all of Switzerland, the Hotel Bergsonne, just announced that the place is for sale, while I was there. They have been there 30 years; I've been going there for somewhere around 20 years. I'm sure thatthere schedule will be "flexible" in the near future. However, I'd try to get there if I could. Remember, Slow Food.
In Weggis, when for some reason I could not stay at the Bergsonne, I have stayed a couple of times at the Hotel Central am See. Really nice rooms, overlooking the lake. Friendly and hepful management. Kitchen was good when not rushed, but on one Friday evening, the place was full and the service was slow and erratic, and the food merely OK. Menu is fairly limited.
Will you spend time around the lake?
PS- I'm sure that I linked you to this map before, from the Swiss land Bureai, but,memory is not always reliable, so here it is again. Buried in this map is a lot of information, including some of special interest to a geologist.

Make sure to play with "looking for more maps?"
