<<"3:00pm arrive in Luzern (spend about 1-2hours) - boat tour (PLEASE SUGGEST WHICH AREA TO GO FOR A BOAT TOUR)Back to ZugIwould be grateful if someone can plan an alternative for me such thatwe can visit Jungfrau on Sunday morning instead and see the towns on Saturday since most things will be closed on Sundays unless you say there are not much to see apart from nature which is independent of timeMany thanks!!"">
It sounds like you have an excellent plan, but keep an eye on the weather as it can change rapidly in the Alps.
One option is that it would be possible to spend more time in Luzern on the 25th, even with your stated schedule, because Zug is so close to Luzern.and you can stretch your day at the end.. You can leave Luzern at 1810 and be in Zug at 1830, for example.
for the timetable
Luzern has many attractions open on Sunday and the schedules are not so much affected by the sports seasons as in the Alpine resorts. You could keep that in mind.
The villages of Mürren and Wengen are noted mostly for sightseeing and places to eat and sleep. Hiking bases in the summer, skiing bases in the Winter. Cable car from Mürren upwards, also. As far as I know, it will not make much difference between Saturday and Sunday, and with your schedule you might only need a cup of tea or coffee in the afternoon. Frequent trains mean you can be flexible.
If Arno or Annika can comment on Sunday closings, I'd appreciate it.. Throughout Switzerland, Mondays tend to be the day that things close.
If you wish to exchange your days ( which is not necessary in my opinion) you might spend Saturday in Luzern, stay Saturday night in interlaken, and, if the weather holds, go up to Jungfraujoch on Sunday morning.
Weather near the top of Jungfrau tend sto be cloudier as the day progresses. Morning is frequently, but not always, better for views.
Stop at a village(s) if you wish on the way down---Wengen is easier, Grindelwald is more commercial and might have more restauarants open, but if you chose Wengen you could substitute a walk on the LB Valley floor. Maybe the Staubbach Falls are open..... Look at a map:
Then return to Zug directly from Lauterbrunnen - 2hrs 57 minutes every half hour in the early evening.
It's a long day, but you can shorten the stays in the village(s) in the Jungfrau region.
As for Luzern Lake boats- my favorite portion is a bit complex to fit in.
It is to use the trains to get to either Brunnen (10 minute walk to dock) or Flüelen (2 minute walk to dock) and ride the lake boat between the two stops. Then take the train back to Luzern, or, directly to Zug, which would be faster. Best part of the lake, in my opinion.
There are also routes which connect Luzern with the villages on the shore of the northern part of the lake.
Those are quite nice, too. That part of the lake has the Rigi and Pilatus to look at.
You'll need a map.
Here is the schedule--pick the right season -
