We would like to do the Golden Round Trip from Luzern to Alpnachstad by boat, the cog wheel train to Mt. Pilatus, then the cable car and gondola to Kriens and then bus back to Luzern. We have Eurail passes.

I understand the following discounts:

Cableway/train from Kriens or Alpnachstad to Pilatus: 50% off

Train to Lucerne or Alpnachstad: free

Bus from Lucerne to Kriens: no discount

Is the boat from Luzern to Alpnachstad also free?

Also, if I want tickets in advance for the boat, the cog wheel train to Pilatus and the cable car and gondola to Kriens, how do I purchase those? This website (www.myswissalps.com/pilatus/tickets) describes packages with guided tours, but I just want the tickets without a guide:

Thank you in advance.

Lake Luzern boats are 50% discount with Eurail, not free

Hi Todd,

As 1960man says, the boat is indeed 50% off with your Eurail Global Pass. You'll find information like that here: www.myswissalps.com/eurailglobalpass/validity.

The page www.myswissalps.com/pilatus/tickets lists purchase options for independent trips (no guide) but the websites may not offer tickets specifically for Eurail pass holders. If none of them offers that, you can buy your tickets on the spot (Kriens, Lucerne or Alpnachstad). For anyone else reading this: the page www.myswissalps.com/pilatus/packages lists packages, which may be guided.

Enjoy your trip!
