It was an enjoyable trip from start to finish! Right from pick up to drop off, we did not have to worry about a single thing! Everything was arranged, and the train journey over the Albis pass took my breath away! We also had a short stop at the Lion Monument, and we got a good lot of time to explore Lucerne properly! The train journey offers glimpses of the Alps throughout, and you wouldn’t feel bored for a minute.

The Jesuit church, Lion monument, and the Chapel Bridge were so beautiful! On top of that, you also get to see the picturesque Lake of Four Cartons with its crystal clear water! Of all the Lucerne day trips, this one is undoubtedly the best! The train ride from Zurich to Lucerne is a must as it offers the best views of the city of Lucerne and also gives a slightly off-beat experience! Overall me and my friends enjoyed the trip.
