Kindly help me from your experience on my following 2 day draft plan whether it is doable?

Day 1: Arrive Lucerne: 10 AM

Plan for day:

1. Trip to Mount Pilatus ( 1 hour)

2. Lake Luzern

3. Mt. Rigi

4. Old Town Lucerne walk

5. Visit to the glacier garden close to the old town of Lucerne

Plan for the day 2:

Glacier express tour: From Lucerne early morning take a train to Chur and board the Glacier Express there. Get off the train in Brig. Then take a train back to Lucerne.

Spreuer Bridge

Chapel Bridge (Kapellbrucke)

Hi rahmanr67,

Those days are very busy. Have you used the Swiss timetable to plan it all out?

Day 1:
It takes an hour just to reach Mt. Pilatus, then maybe 2 hours there and then an hour back to Lucerne. You could do Mt. Pilatus and Mt. Rigi or Lake Lucerne but not all 3 in one day.

Day 2:
This day is possible for the Glacier Express but again a long one - I wouldn't plan on doing anything else that day. The Chapel bridge of course doesn't take any time and is right downtown.

In the winter season (until 9 May 2018 inclusive), there is only one Glacier Express service in each direction. Coming from Chur, you will arrive in Brig at 15:40 and won't get back to Luzern until 18:01.

The Swiss Museum of Transport closes at 5pm in winter.
