Full description
Starting from Zurich, take a scenic coach journey through the beautiful countryside and along the shores of the Lake of the Four Cantons, making your way to the charming town of Lucerne. Enjoy a short photo stop en route at either Lake Lucerne or the Lion Monument where you can capture the beautiful views on camera.

On the way into the Old Town of Lucerne, your guide will point out the most famous landmarks such as the Chapel Bridge, the Jesuit Church, and the Concert & Congress Hall on a brief introductory tour. Once you have arrived in the Old Town, use your free time to wander around the city and explore its sights.

In the afternoon, the newly designed Bürgenstock shuttle boat takes you on a scenic cruise to Kehrsiten, before you board the legendary Bürgenstock funicular railway. Then, get a glimpse of the world of luxury at the Bürgenstock resort, which first opened its doors to the public back in 1827. Stroll along the paths where the rich and famous resided back in the day. Not only shopping or restaurant opportunities at the resort will await you at 500 meters above the lake, but also hiking paths and astonishing views over Lucerne and its surrounding landscapes.

All active or thrill-seekers can take an alpine hike to the Hammetschwand Lift, the world’s highest exterior elevator (optional).
