What people are saying about Lucerne

We had a very nice time. Everything was as described. One thing I was confused about was the description said that only paper tickets were accepted. We arrived at the mountain and showed our electronic tickets at the ticket/service office. They in turn handed us 2 paper ticket cards that we used to scan at the various stations throughout the event. Very well organized. Lastly, the boat ride back to Lucerne (25 Euro per person) was very nice but it took over an hour so keep that in mind when planning.

It's easier than explained here. Go up from Kriens station by cable car to the viewpoint of Mount Pilatus (you can't miss it) Up there, then go up to all the peaks on foot and enjoy the views. Then go down by train to Alpsnchadt. Finally you take the S5 train to Lucerne and that's it.

This is a magnificent way to see several lakes, towns and cities all at once. We had an incredible experience and highly recommend this adventure to everyone!! There's so much to do and see for all ages. We are making plans for a second visit. Thanks

The ride up the mountain was beautiful and you could overlook the city as you were going up. The day we went it started snowing halfway up the mountain, which made the experience even more amazing.

That was an excellent way to explore this beautiful city. We had such a nice time :)
