>> I was suggested the Gothard panoramic express which will include a 3 hr journry by boat and 2 hrs by the gothard express. My question is whether can I have a full train journey eg. (Gothard panoramic express from Lucerne to Lugano) the reason I dont want to do a boat trip is because I will be visiting Mt. Pilates/Mt. Titlis and Mt. Giri and I assume I need to take the same boat on all these journeys and hence the travel will be repeatative,or is it a different route via the boat.
The only section that would be repetitive is from Luzern to Vitznau, which is about 1 hour of a 3 hour trip.
When you go to Pilatus, you to to Alpnachstad, a completely different part of the lake than when you go to the Rigi. The boat trip to the Rigi only involves travel over about half of the lake. I have attached a map to illustrate.
Personally I think it would be a shame to miss going the whole length of the Vierwaldstättersee (Lake Lucerne) to Flüelen. The Flüelen end of the lake is quite different from the lake closer to Luzern, with more dramatic mountains. But it's your choice of course :-)
