Moni: “How is glass made? Find out by visiting the Hergiswil Glassworks, which has been running since 1817.”
Mischa: “I recommend the Swiss Museum of Transport on the outskirts of Lucerne. It’s so interesting, you could spend the whole day there – plus it has a large-screen cinema and a planetarium.”
