On November 24th our family will be travelling from Zurich to Lucerne area. I saw the following recommendations in this site:
Take the train from Zurich to Arth-Goldau and from there the cogwheel train over Mt. Rigi (do not miss the views on top of Mt. Rigi) down to Vitznau. From there you can do one of the most scenic cruises on lake Lucerne to Lucerne.
We are trying to do this trip exactly that way.
We will reach Arth-Goldau at 9:46 AM from Zurich. Then we catch the 10:10 AM train to Rigi Klum (is this the cog wheel train?) to reach there at 10:47AM. Then we will catch the 11:00 AM train to Vitznau (is this the cog wheel train?) and reach there at 11:40 AM.
Finally we will take the boatride at 12:11 AM from Vitznau to Lucerne to reach there in about an hour.
Does this plan look right? How do you recognize whether this is cog wheel train or regular train.
We have purchased Swiss Travel Pass, it seems the whole trip, train, cog wheel train and the boat ride will be covered by the pass. Also, in November last week, does this trip make sense?
