Funicular, reaching the top
The Gütsch Hotel website calls the sculpture park "a land of fantasy irony, contemplation, experiment, mystic, and happiness." We wander.
From the hotel, trails lead into the forest, heading toward other parts of the city and beyond. We hike a ways, then return and head back down into the city and over to the Glacier Garden, preserving glacial potholes formed during the last ice age

The Glacier Garden also has a museum of fossils found in the area and an exhibition of life in early Lucerne.

Early Lucerne life
From the Glacier Garden, it's a short walk down to Lake Lucerne, where we take a cruise around the lake, viewing the city and mountains from the water.
Cruising on Lake Lucerne
Soon, it's time for dinner, which turns out to be Italian again: antipasto tower; pappardelle with spinach, olives, feta, pine nuts, and fresh mozarella; and pizza with speck.
Antipasto, pappardelle, pizza
Another great day in Lucerne!
