Hollgrotten

Reviewed By DynamicFly - Eloy, Arizona

The drive to the caverns was through a long and skinny forest road, just when I thought I was going the wrong way, we finally arrived.
The self-guided tour doesn't take that long, but it is pretty interesting to see how the various structures were created over time. There are two parts to the cavern, and upper and lower section.

Bad Hirsgarten

Reviewed By lindaZug_Switzerland - Zug, Switzerland

The location is stunning, next to lake and Villette park, if only they could improve the selection of food, things would be perfect. I appreciate the kitchen may be small, but food and salad are a little under-inspired and thoughtless. Maybe bring on some women and spice things up with some creative menu suggestions to make us want to come back to eat, time and time again. Because there really isn't a nicer location in Cham. I was more impressed with the Badi at Casino Zug so I personally believe the Hirsgarten has huge potential that is not being exhausted.

Park Seleger Moor

Reviewed By FormerCaliBoy - Zurich, Switzerland

Seleger Moor can actually be accessed with public transit from the main Zurich train station utilizing train S9 (Affoltern), then transfer to local bus #223 (direction am albis Post) to Seleger Moor. This journey will take about 45 minutes. Also, check the return bus schedule as it only runs every hour. Seleger Moor is open daily from 08-18.00 April through October and entrance fee is 10CHF. Arriving by car, there is a large parking lot. Inside the park there are several places to purchase food & beverages and toilets on premises.
I made my first visit in April and not too many of the plants were blooming so I made it a point to return again, this time in late May. The park in general is very large with paved main trails and side trails lined of wooden mulch. The parks is very nice for a family outing, but keep a close eye on the young ones as there are several larger ponds and creeks on the grounds. The place is a real paradise for the many birds, frogs, and insects you will see and hear along the trails. Take a seat on one of the many benches throughout the park and enjoy the atmosphere.
In my opinion, the prime time of year to visit for the flowers in full bloom would be middle to late May. Also, if you arrive before 09.00 (weekends included) you will most likely have the park to yourself. Allow up to two hours to view the park at a faster pace, more time if you are taking breaks, picnics or lots of photos.

Strandbad Lido

Reviewed By K8yorr - Sanibel

You have to pay an entry fee for this attraction (I think it was just under 30 CHF for two kids and one adult; cash only for totals under 40 CHF). There's a swimming pool, small cafe, sand volleyball courts and loads of play structures for little kids. We only used the play area. Probably best for 4-6 year olds. Plenty of restrooms and changing areas. Sandy beach. Quick boat ride from Lucerne (piers are just across from the main Lucerne (Luzern) train station. Mini golf nearby (which was interesting--no artificial turf--just painted cement course), but also had to pay over 21 CHF for three players (and they only took cash).

Sportcenter Ageri

Reviewed By Tokyo I

I was harassed here often. One specific staff member would come to me and complained about specific working conditions and the inability of some guests to speak German. I just wanted to work out, why I would need to be subjected to staff complaints is a mystery.
Men in the sauna would ask me out on dates or would offer to "massage my back." Creepy.
Also, they will push any product they can on you. After a while, I avoided trainers because they were continually trying to push the newest product, service or offer, relentlessly. If you just want a place to work out and be at peace, go down to Zug or Zurich. This is not it.
