Nowhere will you find such a large range of experiences embedded in beautiful mountain and lake scenery. The charming city of Lucerne will surprise you with a wealth of opportunities; centuries-old sights such as the Chapel or the historical city centre, a variety of museums, attractive shopping opportunities, and cultural events throughout the year. The region is fascinating with diverse mountain adventures and record-breaking mountain railways. Rigi, Pilatus, Titlis, Stanserhorn, and numerous other mountain and hiking worlds are popular destinations with breathtaking panoramas.
The Old Town and Lake Lucerne are wonderful to take a stroll along. A boat trip with culinary offerings provides a well-deserved rest. If you want something more active, there is also hiking and cycling on the Pilatus, Rigi, and Stanserhorn.
The winter sports paradise found a stone's throw from the city of Lucerne on the Rigi, the Pilatus, and the Stanserhorn.

Vitznau lies in an idyllic bay of Lake Lucerne at the foot of the Rigi. This holiday resort in central Switzerland is a popular starting point for numerous excursions around the lake, primarily and naturally, up the famous regional mountain.
Only just a half-hour’s journey onboard the Vitznau-Rigi railway separates the village on the lakeshore at 435 metres from the Kulm of the Rigi viewing and climbing mountain at 1798 metres.
The small, idyllic holiday resort of Weggis lies at an altitude of 435 metres on the shore of Lake Lucerne and at the foot of the renowned Rigi. Weggis offers tranquillity and relaxation in front of a beautiful lake and mountain panorama. The region on the southern flank of the Rigi is often termed the ‘Riviera’ of central Switzerland.
“The most charming place…“ It is true. Even in the past, many people raved about Weggis: above all, the American author and travel writer Mark Twain. In 1897 he wrote that Weggis was the “loveliest place” he had ever visited.
