My son the brave – Rope Park, Mount Pilatus, Switzerland


When you are on a long trip through Europe the kids get bored by seeing another old town, another cathedral and yet another castle. We have tried to break our trip up so they get some activities, which would appeal to them. When we were in Lucerne we went up the Mount Pilatus. The weather turned really nasty and with limited options on the mountain we took our kids to the Mount Pilatus Rope Park (Siel). I was amazed how brave my kids are. Some of the sections were very difficult and they both did them all. Here is Sebastian on one of the highest crossings with Mount Pilatus in the background. Looks like he is walking the ropes in the clouds.
