Good morning. Four of us will be traveling from Zurich airport to Lucerne for 1 night before heading to Lake Brienz for a week. Wondering if we should do either Mt Pilatus or Rigi at that time. Which would be the easiest to do and best as far as time goes. Also coming from airport so will have luggage may have to drop off at hotel first. Any suggestions about which one and how to handle luggage would be appreciated. We will be arriving on Friday October 5th at approximately 11:00AM. Thanks

Hello again - re choice between Rigi and Pilatus - we have done both these trips and enjoyed them both - you can find times using the sbb website. Rigi will be free if you have Swiss Pass and Pilatus discounted. Because I love boats on both occasions we took the boat option which takes longer than the train - it depends on how you are placed timewise. I have attached a word document with times using boat on forward journey and train on way back creating round trips but you can as I said use sbb to find alternative times. There are lockers at Lucerne railway station if you don't want to check in at hotel first especially if hotel is some distance from railway station and will take up precious time.
Hope you enjoy whichever you choose to do.

We've just come home after a lovely 8 days in Switzerland. Yes, as Maggie has told you, there are lockers at Luzern rail station(9 sf for a large locker) but getting to Riggi is a bit complicated at the moment because of repairs. It's best to ask at Luzern info. for options. Mt. Pilatus was a lovely trip.Regards, Aussie.
