Hi,
I am planning to visit Lucerne for 2 days from 12th - 14th aug. I am coming after a Rhine cruise and shall be etching Basel on 12th morning.
Please help me out with my following queries :
A. I intend to buy a 8 day Swiss saver pass at Basel and then travel to Lucerne. I am likely to reach Basel by 8 am. Do you think I will have enough time in hand to make a trip to Mt Rigi after reaching Lucerne, weather permitting. Is the boat ride to Vitznau going to be free?
B. I plan to visit Mt Titlis the next day. If I leave at 0830 am by when can I reasonably expect to be back. Do I have enough time time to do some sightseeing afterwards, such as the Chapel Bridge and Lion Monument.
Eagerly expecting your expert advice so that I can plan my trip accordingly
Regards
Saroy

Hello Saroy! Yes, you'll have enough time to get to the Rigi and Lucerne. The entire trip is for free with your Swiss Saver Pass. The regular timetable and the lake Lucerne boat timetable will help you plan your trips. A visit to the Titlis takes at least half a day, but you will be able to visit Lucerne's town centre if you leave early and don't spend hours at the top. Do try to keep your schedule flexible and change it according to weather forecasts. You may also visit Lucerne early in the morning and then head onto Engelberg if clear skies are expected in the afternoon.

Further specifics and purchase options for your Swiss Saver Pass can be found here.
