Good place to meet between Erlenbach and Kussnacht am Rigi

I live in Kussnacht am Rigi and I have a friend who has recently moved here too. She lives in Erlenbach near to the Kusnacht in Zurich. It seems we are about one hours apart assuming we do not get held up in traffic. My friend has two children a girl aged three and a boy aged one. I have a five year old boy and a ten years old girl. My children are at local Swiss school and come home for lunch so I am unable to meet my friend in the mornings as I need to be home for 11.30 when the children come home from school. As the children do not have school on a Wednesday afternoon I am looking for somewhere that my friend and I can meet up that is somewhere between the two. Does anyone have any suggestions of any places that are suitable for us to meet? It can be a indoor play area with a cafe or even a playground that is somewhere between the two. The only other issue we have is that I need to be in Luzern for 16.30pm and my friend really doesn't want to get stuck in rush hour traffic around Zurich. Looking forward to hearing all your suggestions. Many thanks in advance.

Re: Good place to meet between Erlenbach and Lussnacht am Rigi

So you need to:
- leave Küssnacht am Rigi after 11:30
- arrive back in Luzern before 16:30
- have your friend return home via Rapperswil rather than via Zürich HB

What about Rapperswil then?

Take the 11:58 train from Küssnacht am Rigi, get into Rapperswil at 12:59. Spend two hours there with your friend (I'll leave it to someone who knows Rappi a bit better to recommend a place) and then catch the 15:00 to Luzern. That puts you in Luzern at 16:20.

Meanwhile the friend can catch the S7 at 15:10, change in Meilen and be home by 15:44.

Another possibility would be Pfäffikon SZ (about 10 minutes shorter for you, longer for her.)

Thanks for your suggestions. We do not need to travel by train as we both have cars. But I guess the trains are a good idea to avoid the traffic. Many thanks

Oh, I've no idea about driving times - sorry!

But in that case she could take the car ferry at Meilen, and then meet you somewhere down t'other side of the lake (Horgen, Wädenswil or even Au, that's lovely this time of year.)

What if the car leaving from luzern travels at 68 km/h and the one leaving from Rapperswil does 40 mph ? By how many kilometers does the meeting point move when the car from luzern needs to stop for gas for 3 minutes ? Does this change when it has to stop for diesel instead ?

The original question looked so much like a math problem it was totally no surprise MathNut answered it first

Just somewhere between the two would be great. I am not going to get my measuring wheel out. I do not know the area well. Thanks for your suggestions Mathnut. Will look into Rapperswil

Re: Good place to meet between Erlenbach and Kussnacht am Rigi

The MacDonalds in Zug sound like a good suggestion. It has a sitting indoors area but also a 'wintergarden' type sitting outdoor area (you're in a glass box basically). Very nice in winter when it is cold and the sun is shining. The playland area is also in this wintergarden area
