Hi Moderators and experts,

i want to make full use of the days we're in Luzern. We arrive around noon on Friday, July 7 and leave on Monday, July 10. Since I'm not sure about the distances, I need advice on how to fit in everything we want to do. Depending on the weather, we want to visit Mount Titlis and Mount Pilatus. We also would like to do some easy hikes (about 6 km) similar to the Mannlichen-Klein Scheidegg or Muottas Muragl to Alp Languard hikes which we did during our past visits. Will we able to combine the visit to Titlis with the hike from Engelberg to the Truebsee on the same day? If the weather is good, can we go to Pilatus on the afternoon of Friday, the 7th? The other hike we were considering was Rigi Kaltbad to Hinterbergen. Is this uphill or downhill? Last year, thanks to your recommendations, we walked to Morteratsch glacier, did the Muottas Muragl hike, walked from Ospizio Bernini to Alp Grum, from Sunnegga down to Zermatt and also from Rotenboden to Riffelsee. Truly the most amazing experiences with spectacular views. Thank you!

Hi Travelbug53!

Assuming you don't leave too late in the afternoon on Friday you could visit Mt. Pilatus certainly.
Use the Swiss railways timetable here to plan the trip up and down.

We have a few hikes listed under our what to do page for Luzern that can you you choose a hike. I believe combining the hike at Trüebsee and Mt. Titlis is fine if you get an early start.

The hike from Rigi Staffelhöhe to Freibergenis what we often recommend - I'm not sure about Rigi Kaltbad to Hinterbergen - but I am sure other members are.
