Lucerne has a history dating back to the Middle Ages, a lake with extensive navigation and view of the Alps. Owing to all these reasons, the city serves as a gateway to various excursions and tours.
One can travel on the world's steepest cogwheel train to Pilatus, 2,132 metre above sea level. Tourists can visit the Pilatus Snow & Fun Park that offers numerous winter sports.
With an excursion trip to Mount Titlis, one can witness the glacier paradise at 10,000 feet above sea level. To reach the destination, tourists can board a train to Engelberg followed by a ride on the first revolving aerial cable car, Rotair.
