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)

Swiss Chocolate Adventure Experience at Swiss Museum of Transport in Lucerne

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.
