A Swiss pass is not cheap but neither is travel in Switzerland. You need to work out some trips to take using the Swiss rail site www.sbb.ch
or the option on this site.
Two great trips if you wish to see scenery and don't mind a 3km or so walk are.
By boat from Lucerne to Vitznau, then by rack railway to Rigi Kulm, walk back down on the footpath near the railway line you go up, to Rigi Kaltbad then catch the cable car down to Weggis, then boat back to Lucerne. There are several places to eat at the top and the views are superb. Trip is totally free with a Swiss Pass.
By train from Lucerne to Lauterbrunnen via Interlaken Ost (super scenery, sit on the right of the train). Catch the cable car from Lauterbrunnen to Grutschalp then walk to Murren. From here take the cable car to the Schilthorn then go back down to Murren but carry on from there by cable car to Stechelberg. Take the bus from here to Lauterbrunnen to catch the train back. All train travel is free with the pass as is the bus but the cable cars will be 50% of cost.
Hope this is of use, will be there one week before you. Have a great trip.
