Hi experts,

Need your advise please. I will arrive at Zurich on 4 Feb around 9am and will have to catch the 5 pm flight again on 6 Feb. So it will indeed be a very short trip.

unfortunately, I have reserved hotels before I found this website. So I have reserved 1 night in Luzern on 4 Feb and 1 night in Zurich on 5 Feb.

What would be your suggestion for my short visit to make the most of it? Currently I am thinking of:

- Day 1 (4 Feb) : visit Rigi/Pilatus/Titlis or can it be combined?

- Day 2 (5 Feb) : enjoy Luzern and trip to Zurich in the afternoon

- Day 3 (6 Feb) : enjoy Zurich (or probably take a short-medium lake cruise) and back to the airport.

please advise if the current plan is ok or please suggest a better one

Thanks a lot.

Hi Lidia!

I think your plans make sense, and they do allow for some very nice sightseeing. As for day 1: it would be too much to combine all three mountains. You'd better focus on Rigi and/or Pilatus, as they can be reached more easily from Lucerne than Titlis. You would be able to do both Rigi and Pilatus in one day, if you don't mind a somewhat longer travel day. Of course you should only do so if weather is good and skies are clear. Rigi can well be combined with a boat trip over Lake Lucerne, if you like.

Tips for sightseeing in Lucerne are at our Lucerne page; tips for Zurich are at our Zurich page. You may enjoy the short ride to viewing point Uetliberg from Zurich.

Does this help you out?
