We begin our day with a ride on the express train to the lakeside village of Arth Goldau, where we’ll board Europe’s first mountain railway, the Rigi cogwheel train which operates over a 7% incline (1 in 14). We’ll then head over the mountain to Vitznau to take in the stunning views of Lake Lucerne and the surrounding mountains, before a short ferry ride to the charming city of Lucerne. Here we’ll pay a visit to the Swiss Transport Museum and experience the history of various forms of transportation used in bygone times, encapsulating planes, trains, boats, and automobiles! You can spend as long as you like here, with the option to explore the Old City and the famous Muenster bridge close by.
Later on, we’ll return to Zurich by train or take the option to spend a few more hours in Lucerne and look around this beautiful city, with its historic covered bridge and atmospheric old town. There are regular trains to whisk you back to Zurich. Later in the evening we’ll gather for a celebratory farewell dinner in our hotel’s restaurant – a great way to wrap up our wonderful Swiss adventure.
