If we get a Tell Pass and would like to do a round trip starting from Lucerne by boat & back by scenic train or vice versa, could you recommend us the route options?
Hi codyukie, thanks for joining MySwissAlps!
There are several options. The most extensive one would be to travel by boat all the way to Flüelen and board the train back to Lucerne there. Shorter round trips can be made if you get off at Weggis or Vitznau (no trains back to Lucerne, but you can make a side trip to Rigi, descend towards Arth-Goldau and catch the train to Lucerne there) or Brunnen. Please study the information and links at www.myswissalps.com/bo atlakelucerne. The timetable will be of help too. Validity information and further details about the Tell Pass can be found here.
Not sure, but maybe Annika did not include the train to Lugano or Locarno??
Ooops- that is not in the Tellpass.
