Will be arriving from Wengen to Lucern on 16th July and will be staying 2 nights.
By then I would have visited Zermatt Matterhorn and Jungfrau from Wengen. I reckon Titlis will be nearer from Lucern. Should I still go up since its all mountain?
What other places are nice to visit in Lucerne?
I'm probably starting to sound like a broken record on my replies! Sorry. :)

If you get your fill of mountains on your other trips, a lake cruise on Lake Lucerne (https://www.myswissalp s.com/boatlakelucerne) is always a good idea. You could also visit Rigi, a smaller mountain with lots of good hiking trails: https://www.myswissalp s.com/rigi

What do you like to do besides look at the scenery?
I would recommend MT. Rigi. Hike back for an hour. Take the cable car to Weggis. Then take a boat to Brunnen. Take an appointment at Victorinox Swiss Knife Visitors Valley centre at Brunnen for self assembly of a Victorinox Spartan Swiss knife. If interested, can also book a guided tour but I would recommend knife assembly which you can get engraved and take a lifelong memory with you. On the way back you can take a train or boat as per your choice to Lucerne.
If you are sick of mountains, you can take a whole day tour of the city and/or visit to the Swiss Transport Museum.
Are you a hiker?
Luzern is not all about Rigi, Pilatus and Titlis. The city itself is beautiful, spend at least 3 days there. Very relaxing, lots of sights, fascinating Old Town walk, the list goes on. The Bourbaki Panorama is a unique painting not to be missed if you have the Swiss Travel Pass. I was impressed how they merged 3D objects with the painting, almost seamlessly. Take a bus and go to another part of the city, spend some time there. When you are tired walking, just people-watch.

Hi Ritu -
Indeed. Any visitor that I have taken to the Bourbaki Panorama from 8 years old to "well-aged" adults has been fascinated.
