Are there any recommendations for an Excellent Caslte within like 2 hours of Lucerne?
The Castle in Geneva seems a bit far a full day trip seems like.
There are surprisingly few big castles in central Switzerland.
Your choice would be:
TOP CHOICE = Bellinzona, with its three (yes three) castles (although they are not the clichéd 'romantic' type)
Spiez (Luzern - Interlaken express then local train and/or Lake Thun boat to Spiez). As a bonus there also a castle at Oberhofen on Lake Thun.
Rapperswil (Voralpen Express direct from Luzern)
And are these trains included in the Rail Pass?
You can find a list of museum etc that offer free access with the Swiss Travel Pass on our STP page here: www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpass/details
The map shows you which train routes are included: www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpass/validity. All towns in Switzerland can be reached for free with your Swiss Travel Pass.
