Hi Saiprasad-

Welcome to My Swiss Alps

Walk around the old town and the lake shore.

In addition to the standard items, such as the Lion, go inside the Jesuit Church, and look at the Bourbaki Panorama.

Lunch along the river bank at Braurei Rathaus. (the means council house....or town hall.)

Hi saiprasad,

Tips for a visit to Lucerne's old town are listed here. You may even manage to include a short boat ride over the lake, if you like.

Hi Saiprasad -

You did not give a date for your travels. It makes a difference.

The Lake Boat Schedules change at the end of May.

www.lakelucerne.ch/en/ timetable-fares/timetable/

Scroll down the page.

Here is a useful map -

map.search.ch/?x=7592m&y=18992m&z=32& poi=zug

Under points of Interest in the menus, I have opened "Traffic" and checked "Trains" in order to show train stations.

My thought is that it could be difficult to fit in a boat ride within your time constraints, but the best way to tell is to look at schedules and a map.

If you chose some destinations - such as Alpnachstad, the boat dock and the train station are very close to one another. You might go one way by train and one way by boat.

The time table gives schedules and transfer times between, for example, boats and trains.

Boats and buses are included.
