<< Questions; what is the condition of route 2b in early May >>. Answer: You will have absolutely no trouble at all on the 2 and then the 2b from Lucerne to Brunnen.
<< Is Festung Vitznau truly a scenic spot? >> Answer: There are scenic spots all over Switzerland, particularly around Lake Lucerne, and here is no difference. To give you an idea of the view, here is an image from Google Maps taken as you walk down the Oberdorfstrasse just a few metres from the entrance to the fortress. I assume, however, that you are primarily interested in visiting the underground fortress. Here is the website of the fortress; www.festung-vitznau.ch/www/en/01_w elcome_en.php I strongly suggest that you carefully read over the information on their website for when they are open. You can read about "Swiss Army Nights" where you can spend the night on a Swiss army bed, get the guided tour, and a "sumptuous" breakfast buffet for only CHF55 if you bring your own sleeping bag. They also have washroom and shower facilities. www.festung-vitznau.ch/www/en/05_o ffers_1_nights_en.php I've never been to this fortress but plan to do so next time I am over in that part of the country.
<< Is the Swiss army knife museum worth stopping in. >> Answer: If you like Swiss knives (I do, and have over two dozen in my collection) then this should be a hit. You can learn much about what there is to see at www.victorinox.com/glo bal/en/Explore/Visit-Us/Swiss-Knife-Valley-VISITOR-CENTER-Switzerland/cms/visito r-center
Bonus question for Slowpoke or Rockoyster or perhaps one of the Swiss residents: What are the two parallel lines of 7 circular and also 4 square objects in the road (red oval) in the second attached photograph ? Note to Arno: I couldn't figure out how to delete the first attachment. How does one delete an attachment ?
