Important: If you plan to party Saturday night or just randomly signed up for this hike without planning to show up please change your RSVP to 'not going'. There are people on the waiting list and I need to do a train reservation with exact number of participants for the part to the spa and back (I am only making the reservation, you need to ensure to have a valid train ticket).

This hike is moderate in terms of duration and elevation gain, still we need to walk at a swift pace in order to be in time in Vitznau to catch the train. If you cannot walk at a pace of 3-4km per hour when going uphill, then please do not join this hike.
