Prepare to be stunned by the visual beauty of Switzerland as you embark on a scenic coach journey through beautiful countryside to reach Lucerne and Bürgenstock. As you ride along the shores of the Lake of the Four Cantons to the charming town of Lucerne, enjoy a short photo stop en route at either Lake Lucerne or the Lion Monument and feast your eyes and your camera lens to the sights around you.


On the way into the Old Town of Lucerne, your guide points out the most eminent landmarks like the Chapel Bridge, the Jesuit Church and the Concert & Congress Hall on a brief introduction tour. Once having arrived use your free time to roam around Lucerne, explore its sights or have a bite to eat. Thereafter, kick it up a notch with a ride on the newly designed Bürgenstock shuttle boat which takes you to Kehrsiten on a scenic cruise before you board the legendary Bürgenstock funicular railway!


Discover the luxurious Bürgenstock resort that first opened its doors to the public back in 1827 and stroll along the paths where the rich and famous resided back in the days. Here you find that the lavish resort was once host to many renowned guests such as Charlie Chaplin, Audrey Hepburn or Sean Connery! Take the time to go shopping or indulge in the restaurant opportunities at the resort, or head out on the hiking paths in the pure nature and astonishing views over the Lake and Lucerne will await you at 500 metres above Lake Lucerne.


For all the active or thrill-seekers we highly recommend taking an alpine hike to the Hammetschwand Lift, the world’s highest exterior elevator. Descend to Kehrsiten and take a relaxing boat ride back to Lucerne to round off your day. Meet your guide in Lucerne for the return journey to Zürich.
