Am Traveling with family to Switzerland for the first time. We are staying in wengen for 5 days. We have bought the Swiss travel pass n tickets to Jungfrau n MT. Pilatus. We had planned on doing doing day trips to interlaken n other nearby areas for the remaining 3 days.

But now we are tempted to stay overnight in Lucerne and look around. I agree time taken from Wengen to Lucerne is 3 hrs. Is it worth the effort to book a hotel in Lucerne? N save time on the journey. Please advise.

Hi Skaushik,

I think generally Lucerne is worth an overnight stay yes. It is a very scenic town & it is certainly easier to get to Pilatus from there as well.

In addition to Lucas' comments, keep an eye on the weather.

Luzern can be nice even if cloudy. The Jungfrau region loses a lot of its scenery on cloudy days.

Also, because of seasonal weather and altitude, it would be valuable to know when you are traveling.
