I'm looking for advice for trains as well as advice about lodging in Lucerne in May.
Forty-five years ago I was in Lucerne and enjoyed a trip up the cog-wheel RR to the top of Mt. Pilatus. Even saw a nun playing her flute while sitting on a rock up there. Almost expected to see a group of children singing "The Sound of Music." So, I'd like to go again--this time with my wife. I have not been successful so far in figuring out train travel from Paris to Lucerne. I would delight in some good advice.
We'd like to go next to Cologne. (This is where we met those 45 years ago. We'll stay in the same hotel where we met. She's American--I won't bore you further with details: nothing that dramatic.) Again, I'd like some train advice. What's the best way to get to Cologne from Lucerne? (Last time I managed to get to Koblenz and took the boat to Cologne. Is that a good idea these days.)
Thanks in advance.
