          Do you get an "open pass" to use the cable car whilst at the hotel? I want to stay for 2 nights, but during the day want to head back down to visit the Lucerne christmas markets. Or do you have to pay each time you use the cable car? Thanks.

          Is it difficult to get luggage to the hotel. We are planning to take the cable car up and the cogwheel down. I noticed it doesn't seem like a Lot of space for luggage.

          This is no Problem! There is enough space for your luggage in the cable car and the cogwheel.
