Description - What to expect

Start your Lucerne hiking tour with a train ride to Stans on the southern side of Lake Lucerne, a ride that will take roughly 20 minutes. Then make a time-jump ride on a wooden vintage funicular from the 19th century right before getting to the top-modern Cabrio cable car. A great way for enjoying jaw-dropping alpine landscapes! The world’s first convertible-style cable car, the Stanserhorn Cabrio, is where the fun begins.

Wander from the summit down to the plateau at 1200 to 1600 meters above sea level in the Engelberg Valley through the Geo-Trail towards the holiday destination of Wirzwerli where you will take a gondola ride down to the station. A 10-minute stroll will lead you to the train station and back to Lucerne.

Before you set off for your Lucerne hiking get impressed by the flowering meadows, the stunning views over a hundred kilometers of alpine peaks, the city of Lucerne in the distance, and also Lucerne’s own Mount Pilatus rising 2,128 meters into the sky. Admire the lower sprawl of the Bürgenstock and the characteristic double peak of the Mythen among an endless scenery of lakes and mountain meadows.

Marvel at the sights in an unforgettable ride through the valley, and enjoy a panoramic and completely unobstructed view while you float under the open sky with pristine mountain air blowing through your fluttering hair and no ropes above your head – as these are placed on the side of the carriage. The unimpaired view from the roofless upper deck of the gondola is truly memorable.

Explore Lucerne city like a local on an optional 2 hrs. photo walk which includes visits to the Chapel Bridge, Lion Monument, Old City Wall, and Lucerne Castle.
