Lucerne and Zurich from December 21 to 25  (2 Answers)

I am a mom traveling with my three kids, ages 17, 19 and 20. The plan is to take a train from Munich on Wednesday, December 21, arriving in Lucerne at 6 pm. We have a tentative hotel reservation at Hotels Des Alps, but can still cancel with no penalty if anyone had a better suggestion.
I am slightly overwhelmed at the various options of things to do, and really want this to be an unforgettable experience for the kids. I keep looking at various tours from Viator and other companies to Mt Titlus and Mt Pilatus, but it is still not clear to me which of those two would be more enjoyable for my teen/adult kids.
We need to end up in Zurich and spend the night there on the night of December 24, Christmas Eve, so that I can take a 7am flight out of Zurich to Barcelona on Christmas morning.

So here are my questions:
1. Is Hotel Des Alpes in Lucerne a decent hotel in a good location to use as a base for a two days?
Just thinking one day trip to either Mt. Titlus or Mt. Pilatus, and the other day spent exploring old town in Lucerne.
Would love suggestions for a restaurant in Lucerne for a nice dinner.

2. What trip from Lucerne would be a better experience, Mt Pilatus or Mt Titlus?
Should we book a tour with a company or just figure out how to get there on our own? We would do this on either Thursday 12/22 or Friday 12/23 so I am assuming the restaurants and other attractions at the top would not be closed.

3. On the morning of Christmas Eve we will take a train from Lucerne to Zurich. So with just one day in Zurich, can anyone suggest what area to stay in and what to do...as in is there a good guided tour of Zurich that would last a few hours, or are we better off just picking a nice hotel in a walkable area and exploring that on our own. Are most of the shops and restaurants closed on Christmas Eve? I would actually like to stay in a nice hotel since it is Christmas Eve, and would love restaurant suggestions for a very nice Christmas Eve dinner in Zurich. So I would love hotel and restaurant and things to do in one day, please.

I know this a lot to ask but it is getting close and I need help and need to get these thing booked.
Thank you very much!

Jungfraujoch 9.5 hour tour  (3 Answers)

We'll be in Lucerne from 7/23/16 to 7/26/16. Does it make sense to book the "Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe from Lucerne Tour" in advance or should we wait until we arrive and see what the weather is like? We were thinking of taking the tour on 7/24.

Thank you

Rigi, Pilatus, Titlis or Jungfraujoch  (8 Answers)

Hi Finalising our plans for our European holiday in May and the one thing I keep getting stuck on is which place to visit in Switzerland (Lucerne)
We have 3 days and would like to take in 2 of the above - Rigi, Pilatus, Titlis or Junfraujoch. I understand Jungfrau is a long way and the most expensive and sounds great - if weather permits.
I would appreciate any advise on any/all of these places.. I have looked at the Tellpass which looks to be quite economical if visiting Rigi, Pilatus or Titlis.
We would love to see the scenery, take the cogwheel train and maybe a walk if weather permits. Appreciate any information.

Lucerne lake cruise  (2 Answers)

Hallo. Pls do you have any personal experience on lake cruise at Lucerne lake? As a round short trip I found two options and I don't know which is more scenery. The one is Lucerne-Alpnachstad and the other Lucerne-–Küssnacht am Rigi. Both last 2 hours. And there are also 2 shorter ones, up to Meggen (1,30h) and the other to Kastanienbaum (1h). Thank you.

About mount pilatus cable car and train  (3 Answers)

Hi,
We are 4adults and 2 children(ages below 16)
We will be travelling to Lucern with motorhome and planning to go to Mount pilatus.
I have searched a little bit in forums but could not be sure.
One member is telling about gold tour covering cable car,train and boat.But it is a long tour about 9,5 hours about 116 € .
Where can we get information about tours and prices?
If we do it by ourselves will it be cheaper?
And more important is where we can park our motorhome for free and safe?
Thanks.

day trip to Mt.Pilatus from Luzern  (5 Answers)

I plan to go from Milan to Lucerne. and take a side trip to pilatus . I would like to buy tickets ahead but need to know the following:

1. How much time do I need at Pilatus Krum? Is 2 hours enough up in the mountain? I plan to go early at around 9:30 in the morning and back to Lucerne for some sight seeing in the aftenoon. We just want to see the Swiss Alps and experience the clean air. Is 2 hours enough up in the mountain?

2. So what is there to see up in Pilatus?

3. Do I need to buy the ticket ( return) ahead of time? I plan to choose the bus, gondola and cogwheel option so i experience all of these forms of transportation. However, the sbb website does not let me buy ahead of time ( travelling in OCtober) Please tell me how far ahead can I do it.

4. Will I get lost transferring from one mode of transport to another- meaning will there be clear signs directing me ? I am a senior and is the first time going to Switzerland and taking trains.

5. Please help with identifying which train etc to board so that i will not get lost- ( sometimes the train states the last station , not the one i want to get off)

6. last question- how cold is it in early OCt. up the mountain.? what kind of clothing is needed?

Thank you for you help.

Getting to Pilatus  (3 Answers)

Hi!

I'm gonna travel to Luzern in mid-May. I find the top of Pilatus is worth visiting.

So, what is the best way to get there? I found two ways — the first one is a cogwheel train, the second is a cableway.

The train seems to me very amazing and its Alpnachstad station is in good location. But according to the prices it costs 72 CHF, which is very expensive. Or it worth? But every 10th ticket is free of charge (so, how it works?). Also the train is out of service now. I wonder to know when it will be launched. In this case, the cheapest way is to take the cableway from Fräkmüntegg station for 32 CHF. The problem is that I have a car. So, is there a parking to leave it near Fräkmüntegg station?

Guys, I need any suggestions and recommendations from you. Maybe you advise smth else...

Thank you! Danke schön! Merci beaucoup! Grazie!

Hotel parking  (4 Answers)

Hi,

Most hotels I've been looking at in the center of Lucerne say "self-parking." However, some have "self-parking for 18 euros with in-out privileges".

I've been assuming the first one means having to go to a parking lot, but am wondering if the second one means a parking lot associated with the hotel in some way?

Can anyone help? My hotel is located on Bruchstrasse, not too far from the lake.
