Hello lioufamily, and welcome to the forum! I think your itinerary is great. It's quite relaxed and still allows you to thoroughly explore Lucerne and its surroundings. The timetable
will help you to find out about traveling times.
Yes, a Swiss rail pass will save you lots of money. Since you're traveling in April/May, you should use the 2 for 1 offer
on the 4 day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass
. Free traveling days should be used for the first and lasty day and two other days in between. I suggest you use one for the trip to Rigi, as that's for free on a free travel day with your Swiss Saver Flexi Pass. On the remaining days, a 50% discount applies. An alternative is the 2 for 1 offer on the 4 day Swiss Pass
, covering day 1 to 4 and using an additional Zurich Card
for day 5 (and maybe 6).
As for your last day: there's lots to see and do in Zurich. Browsing this forum will provide you with tips and ideas. Since you have to get to the airport the next day, booking a hotel in the city
or near the airport
may be a good idea. Hotels in Lucerne
are available too.
