Looking for ideas for 50th birthday ....

that does not include hosting your own party (too much work). Birthday falls on Auffahrt (Ascension Day) - hence all day available to do something different/exciting. Must be easily accesible (no long traveling required from AG), affordable for normal folk and cool for 16 & 19 year old boys to participate in. 1 Day activity since other activities are planned Friday & Sat. Staying at home is NOT an option!

40th Bday spent in Paris enjoying the sights with the family - nice trip. 50th should be also memorable but not spent using Rega services for the first time.

Well, any ideas?

Unfortunately the shops will be closed on Thursday, and you don't want to travel very far, so I suggest this,

Go to Kloten airport and see if you can spot the pick pockets working the Easyjet queues.

Go to Mount Pilatus. You can take the ship from Luzern, cog-railway up to the top (>2000m), cable car down the other side and then a short bus ride back to Luzern.

Re: Looking for ideas for 50th birthday ....

I appreciate the suggestions - but I think my request was possibly not formulated correctly:

I NEED SOME EXCITEMENT - SOMETHING DIFFERENT - something that is NOT boring. Maybe in the thrillseeking mode that won't automatically kill me the first time I try it - but heck, I'm game.

any ideas? I'm not that old (mentally or physically) - yet....just bored.

Interlaken
! Go Bungy jumping, canyoning, skydiving, whitewater rafting or whatever takes your fancy. You won't need to use Rega, they will take complete and utter care of you all. The teens will love it too, go for it!! They will have everything happening and available on Ascension day.

Have a great 50th, you can even go to (snort) "Hooters" afterwards
