We shall reach Lucerne in about 3 PM and stay in Lucerne and/or Zurich for 3 nights.. Can we enjoy a boat ride in Lake Lucerne at that time? We wish to take to & fro boat journey of 1.5 to 2 hrs. Or can we take one boat journey and return by train? Where we can go nearby?

In the next two days, one day we like to visit Mt Titlis and Mt Pilatus (depending on weather). And the other day, we wish to see Rhine falls in one half. What we can do in the other half? Is Rhine fall worth seeing? What other option we shall have?

May we cover Mt Titlis and Mt Pilatus in one day, if we start at 8 AM. What will be the route?

Where we can get the timings of scenic trains?

Where we can find the train fares and other fares?

What are the bases for Matterhorn and Jungfraujoch?

We wish to purchase Swiss TravelPass for 3 days. What will be better between SwissTravel Pass or Tell Pass (Summer).?

With thanks

Hi Anjan,

For routes, schedules, and standard fares of trains, buses, boats, etc., please check the timetable page. Routes are also explained on all of our attraction pages. On atlakelucerne, for example, there's a link to the dedicated boat timetable.

For what to day you can take a look at cerne/activities and rich/activities.

Zermatt is closest to the Matterhorn and Interlaken and various smaller towns are the best base for a Jungfraujoch trip.

Before you pick a pass you first need an itinerary. Please also see your other thread.
