    Itinerary

    Our journey will start with a lovely coach ride crossing the Albis Pass and along beautiful Lake of the Four Cantons to Weggis. We will board the aerial cable car to Rigi Kaltbad where you will change to Europe's first ever mountain railway up to the summit Rigi-Kulm (1800m). A variety of well-prepared hiking trails invite for a walk and cozy alpine restaurants offer a decent selection of typical, hearty meals all accompanied by the amazing alpine panorama. In winter, you might fancy renting a sledge and zoom down the valley. In the afternoon, descent by cogwheel train to Vitznau and board the public boat for a lovely one-hour cruise on the picturesque Lake of the Four Cantons towards Lucerne. We will visit Old Town, Chapel Bridge, Jesuit Church and the Town-Hall. Further recommendations are a visit to the Swiss Museum of Transport, the biggest museum in Switzerland or for art lovers the Rosengart Museum with works of the famous artists Picasso and Paul Klee. In the evening, we will travel back to Zurich.
    • Lucerne, SWITZERLAND

      This Swiss city on gorgeous Lake Lucerne is popular with tourists due to its amazing views of the lake, Mount Pilatus, and Mount Rigi of the Swiss Alps. Some of the buildings in Lucerne date back hundreds of years.

      Rigi Kaltbad

      A resort in the Swiss Alps, located in the canton of Lucerne which sits on a sunny terrace at a height of 1,433 metres, overlooking Lake Lucerne above Weggis in Central Switzerland.

      Rigi

      The Rigi is a mountain massif of the Alps which is almost entirely surrounded by the water of three different water bodies: Lake Lucerne, Lake Zug and Lake Lauerz. The range is in the Schwyzer Alps, and is split between the cantons of Schwyz and Lucerne, although the main summit, named Rigi Kulm, at 1,798 meters above sea level, lies within the canton of Schwyz.
    • Vitznau, SWITZERLAND

      A popular destination for tourism. It occupies a narrow strip between the lake and the Rigi looming behind; one of the mountain railways to the summit starts in Vitznau.
    • Lucerne, SWITZERLAND

      This Swiss city on gorgeous Lake Lucerne is popular with tourists due to its amazing views of the lake, Mount Pilatus, and Mount Rigi of the Swiss Alps. Some of the buildings in Lucerne date back hundreds of years.

      Chapel Bridge

      This covered bridge that crosses the Reuss River in Lucerne is one of Switzerland's main tourist attractions. The interior of the bridge contains several paintings which were completed in the 17th century.

      Jesuit Church

      The Lucerne Jesuit Church is a Catholic church in Lucerne, Switzerland.It is the first large baroque church built in Switzerland north of the Alps.Construction on the associated church began in 1667. By 1673 the shell of the church and the main façade were completed. The church was consecrated in 1677, though the interior was not yet really finished. Several side altars were still missing and even the high altar was only erected four years later, due to financial problems. The onion topped towers were not completed until 1893. The vault was redecorated in the mid-18th century. The original vestments of Brother Klaus, a famous Swiss patron, are stored in the inner chapel

      The Swiss Transport Museum

      The Swiss Transport Museum opened in July 1959 and exhibits all forms of transport, including locomotive, automobiles,ships, and aircraft as well as communication technology. It is Switzerland's most popular museum. The museum also maintains a large collection of work by Hans Erni, a local painter and sculptor.
