Hi folks, We are travelling from Lucern to Geneva on apr 17th with luggage and would like to visit Gruyere and Broc (chocolate factory) before we reach Geneva. I have made a tentative plan. Let me know if this will work. thanks

Lucern to Bern by train IR15 (1 hr 8:00 - 9:00). Leave the luggage in Bern station locker facility.Take another train from Bern to Gruyere ( 1-1/2 hr 9:34-10:59). have lunch at La maison du Gruyere restaurant. take a train/bus to Broc to visit maison Callier museum. From Broc to Bern (S60-1hr 17 min-16:34-17:51).pickup luggage and take train from Bern to Geneva(IR15-18:04-20:11).

Thank you Steph. This website has been very useful in planning our trip. I've read many forum replies to figure out our itinerary. For the trip Luzern to Geneva, I have decided Saver day pass would be the best option for trains and bus connections. Hopefully we will have a pleasant journey!

You could get a direct train from Luzern to Fribourg and leave luggage in lockers there to cut down a bit on back-tracking to Bern.

Guess it depends on connection times in Fribourg if that will work or not.

I couldn’t find any locker information for Fribourg station. Are there lockers in that station?

Hi Hema,

Yes, you will find lockers at Fribourg station.

Check:

and zoom in on the map, or download it.

Best,
Steph

Thanks Steph. That was helpful. I will plan our day accordingly. Keeping Fribourg as mid point saves time for us. For a day trip to Rigi, Can we take a train from Vitznau to Rigi Kaltbad and return the same way to Vitznau Since the cogwheel train is not operating in March-April?

Thanks

Hello Hema,

I'm glad my Fribourg suggestion was helpful for you.

You wrote "Can we take a train from Vitznau to Rigi Kaltbad and return the same way to Vitznau Since the cogwheel train is not operating in March-April?"

You can certainly take the train Vitznau to Rigi Kaltbad and back. But when you say the cogwheel train is not operating do you mean the cableway from Rigi Kaltbad to Weggis which is indeed not running at that time.

Rigi Kulm is the top of Rigi by the way not Rigi Kaltbad. From Rigi Kulm you can also take a different cogwheel down to Arth-Goldhau and return to Luzern from there. See www.myswissalps.com/ri gi/gettingthere.
