I wish to do the Lake Luzern cruise thing but I’m a little confused about the time slot to choose. I would arrive at Luzern through TGV at around 4 pm and I believe by the time I check-in to the hotel and get ready it would be around 6 pm. Now, I want to do the Lake Luzern cruise during the day time when there’s sunlight – and not during night time. Please let me know until what time of the day Luzern city (particulary Lake Luzern area) would have adequate sunlight (atleast normal, if not bright).

2. Any help with a broad plan/ itinerary for the Lucerne area-things to do, places to see etc would be appreciated.
3. should I be looking at a Tell pass or Swiss pass or both given my above itinerary.
Thanks and Regards.

Hi, I plan to visit Lucerne for few days. I'd arrive at the Lucerne train station through the TGV from Basel SBB roughly at around 1505. I am going to stay at Ibis Styles Luzerne City hotel. Please advise me what would be easiest, safest and economical way to reach my hotel from the Luerne Train station. Thank you
We plan to stay in Lucerne for only one night, but we'll have a car and most hotel I've looked at (3 to 4 star) say parking is available nearby for a surcharge, or at a nearby public parking place. Can anyone suggest a nice (charming?) hotel, not necessarily in the middle of the city, where we can park without having to pay?
Thank you very much.

Is anyone can help to provide some info on Stanserhorn, Titlis & Transportation Museum?
a) Open Air Cable Car to the Stanserhorn.
I've browsed through the website, the fares as below. May I know what is the difference between the 1st & 2nd options? Both also back to Stans. Is the 4th option including return ticket to Stans?
Adults (Swiss Pass) CHF 34.00 (return)
2) Round trip Stans-Stanserhorn-Wirzweli-Dallenwil-Stans
Adults (Swiss Pass) CHF 23.40
3) Round trip Stans-Stanserhorn-Wiesenberg-Dallenwil-Stans
Adults (Swiss Pass) CHF 25.00
4) Good morning ticket (departure: 8.15am / 9.15am)
Adults (Swiss Pass) CHF 29.00
I would like to hike for 1 section from Trubsee station. Would like to confirm the correct route. Is it from Engelberg & get off Trubsee station, then I’ll need to hike up until Titlis or to Jochpass & hop in the cable car from Jochpass to Titlis? If this included into the Engelberg to Titlis route? And how long will it take to hike up until the next station to catch up the next cable car to Titlis?
c) Transportation Museum Lucerne, is this museum covered free with Swiss Pass. I know Swiss Pass got provide free entry for museum but not sure is it applies the same for Transportation Museum Lucerne.
Thanks a lot. Have a nice day.
I want to ask who can tell me the cheapest option to travel from geneva to lucerne
As part of a short trip in Nov this year, for duration of 5-6 days I have planned to visit Interlaken, Paris and Lucerne
My flight tickets and hotel bookings are all done
What I am left with respect to plan is about travel between these cities
As I ave already been to France twice, I have an idea about getting reservation and all
But I would like to know the duration and cost (approx) for the mentioned below travel:
- Zurich to Interlaken : Evening train
- Interlaken to Paris: Evening train
- Paris to Lucerne: Evening/ Early Morning train
- Lucerne to Zurich: Evening train
I already did alot google on this, but it doesn't seems that much helpful
As hotel bookings are already done, I wont be very flexible in changing the travel plan
Also, rather than booking train tickets online, I am planning to get all tickets done when I reach Zurich from station itself, as I thing they will provide me better info about travel passes and tickets all together
Objective here is to get the cash ready with me for travel purpose separatly
Thanks in advance for your assistance

I'm planning a day trip in Lucerne & Pilatus Kulm. I checked the website but information is a bit strange regarding the cog railway. Since I'm going there on Saturday, end of April, is it possible to take the cog railway to Pilatus? Or it's closed? I read lots of post on the internet and I understand that summer season beggins in May and winter season ends in March. So it leaves April in what season? :)
I know the other options to go up there, but I'd preffer the cog railway.

Guys, I amm planning a trip to swiss for around nine days. I am getting in at Zurich and then making my way to Geneva from there. In between I will visit, Lucerne, Interlaken and Berne. My question revolves the two days I plan to be in lucerne. I have reserved one day for Mount Titlis and the next day for Mount Pilatus. There are plenty of trips available on the internet and most of them are expensive. I don't mind shelling that kind of money, but of course the preference is to save and also if possible to travel on my own, rather than be bound to any travel services.
Q1) How do I get to Mount Titlis from Lucerne. Can some one please break up the stages of journey and also tell me the approximate cost for each journey?
Q2) How do I get to Mount Pilatus from Lucerne. Can some one please break up the stages of journey and also tell me the approximate cost for each journey?
Really appreciate any help you can provide in this matter.
