I had seen pictures of the glass lift and was fairly excited about going up in it. The reality turned out to be a little less exciting.The lift was constructed over 100 years ago in 1904 by Rudolf Sendig and boasts a 50 m high free-standing tower. A man takes your money inside the lift, it's quite quaint.If you venture to Lucerne in Switzerland there a much higher one though. With the one at Bad Schandau you can reach the village of Ostrau, but we didn't know that when I forked out the money. Frankly, if I were to go again, I'd walk the trail. Fares:1,50 € single tour, 1 € reduced (children from 6 to 16 years old, bikes)2,50 € round trip, 1,50 € reducedThere are also family tickets and if you've paid the local visitor's tax you also get a discount. However, there's one amazing thing I knew nothing about. For that, go to my next tip.
