We spent the night at mooring at Basel. Early the next morning, we were taken by coach to Lucerne where we had a brief tour of the downtown, including the Chapel Bridge, following which I took the opportunity to hike up one of the remaining towers of the old town for a few panoramic shots of the city and Lake Lucerne.

On returning to the coach, we were then taken to Kriens, only 1576 ft above sea level, for the two stage, one hour trip up Mt. Pilatus.
