Best vistas in the Lucerne – Lake Lucerne Region
Just as fascinating as the charming city of Lucerne is the surrounding area. The Lucerne – Lake Lucerne Region with its unique mountain and lake landscape offers countless options for excursions. Excursion to the Alps in the region is, in fact, an age-old tradition. Traces of this tradition can be tracked while taking a ride on Europe’s oldest mountain railway, as it winds its way up Mt. Rigi or on the world’s steepest cogwheel train to the top of Mt. Pilatus. Those seeking fun and games on a glacier have to take a ride on the first revolving aerial cable car – the Rotair – to the top of Mt. Titlis: at 3000 meters, it is the highest accessible peak in the Lucerne – Lake Lucerne. Since 2012 the world’s first CabriO® cable car (a double-deck aerial cable car) connects the middle station Kälti with the Stanserhorn.
A boat ride on Lake Lucerne, which has the most extensive inland navigation system in Europe, is simply a must. The panorama boat, the five paddle steamers or the elegant catamaran are certain to render your stay extraordinary.
