Runs around the main central areas of Lucerne and a bit of fun. If you have young ones, I would recommend. It was novel and fun.

My husband and I only had a few hours to explore Luzern, and the weather wasn’t great, so this was the perfect way to get it all in! During high season it leaves on the hour every hour for most of the day and lasts...More

On a wet afternoon we enjoyed the hour long little train tour. The recorded commentary was clear and easy to understand. A great inexpensive introduction to Luzern. Pick up your tickets directly from the driver.

This was not planned, but certainly worthwhile. After walking around, it was so nice to sit and enjoy a flute performance by the driver and an audio commentary throughout the tour. It gave a concise and inexpensive tour of the city.

We jumped on this train on a whim. It was well worth the time as it showed us parts of Lucerne that we were not aware of. For 12 Chf and 40 minutes it was value for money.

This tram style train starts and ends at the Sterne Hotel Schweizehof in town. This 40 minute ride will give you a good sense of getting around Luzern. Expensive but well worth the journey. Head phones are supplied.

It is a recorded message in your language train loop of Lucerne. It was a quick overview. I think you could see just as much on foot with a good map. You can't get off of the train so we walked back to see the...More

The tour of 40 minutes is good if one has limited time in the city. We are not allowed to get down once we are on board. The biggest disappointment was that we don't get a full view of lion monument which is one of...More
