i don't feel to bright😕I am trying to type in names of boats docks and locations of cable cars and keep having trouble. For example, what do I type in for Lucerne boat dock?

*i am trying to decide whether to get a type of Swiss pass and wanted to study costs of our train travel and hiking/ transportation routes, particularly when we spend 5 days traveling from Meiringen for day hikes.

So this is recommended for our one day in Lucerne. How would I go about using the travel time table to find these costs?

"Great round trip with the boat ride on lake Lucern to Vitznau, then the cogwheel railway to the top of Mount Rigi. Great panoramic views fom the top. We walked down the mountain (stopping for hot chocolates along the way) to the top station for the cable car down to Weggis before catching the boat back to Lucern. Well worth the trip. "

Thank you for your time!!

Hi LMontB,

Welcome to the MySwissAlps community! The process of comparing passes is explained here. Also there's explanation on the timetable page. Did you read those pages? Please feel free to let me know if anything is not clear there.

The main boat dock in Lucerne, across the main station, is called "Luzern Bahnhofquai". This page might help you out as well: www.rigi.ch.
