Day 1 - Arrive and explore Lucerne

Flight from the UK to Zurich with rail travel to Lucerne
Check in to your hotel for your 3 night stay and enjoy the beautiful sights of the lakeside. 

Day 2 - A trip to Mount Rigi

The Queen of the Mountains, Mount Rigi is one of the most popular days out from Lucerne. There are a variety of ways to reach the mountain, all covered with your Swiss Travel Pass. One particularly enjoyable route is to cruise along the lake to Vitznau and then travel up on Europe’s oldest cogwheel railway. You can return via cable car to Weggis, then cruise or bus back to Lucerne. The mountain itself offers winter walking trails and lovely views while you enjoy a hot drink in a mountain restaurant.

Day 3 - Luzern-Interlaken Express to Interlaken

Today visit Interlaken on this wonderful route over the Brünig Pass and alongside Lake Brienz to the famous resort. The journey takes around 2 hours each way. If you feel like exploring further, why not travel on the Jungfrau railway through Lauterbrunnen Valley up to the picturesque skiing village of Wengen with its welcoming bars and fabulous views. This journey is also included with your Swiss Travel Pass

Day 4 - Last day

As Lucerne is only an hour away from Zurich airport you have time to further explore the beautifully historic Old Town before you take the train for your flight to the UK.

This is only a suggested itinerary which shows you some of the wonderful trips you can do from Lucerne. You could decide on a visit to Switzerland’s historic capital Bern, which would also be included in your Swiss Travel Pass.
