<<"<<"By the way did you say before that there is no need totake theWilhelm Tell Express but any train from Luzern towards Milanwill have the same scenic view?">>Correct.">>
I should add-
But, the Wilhelm Tell Express uses the lake boat on Lake Lucerne between Luzern and Flüelen, which is at the southernmost end of Lake Lucerne. That boat ride is about 3 hours long. The train covers that stretch in an hour or an hour and ten minutes, depending whether you change at Arth Goldau. The train only has glimpses of the lake on that stretch. Although there is some other nice scenery, the scenery on the lake from the lake boat is much better, in my opinion.
And, if you are lucky, you can ride one of the restored steam-driven paddle wheel driven lake boats, such as the SS Uri.
Of course, if you study the schedules carefully, you can find those boats and ride them from most of the boat landings around the lake.
