Get to know the charming old town of Lucerne

guided bus tour Zurich - Stans and Lucerne - Zurich


First, the tour takes you in a comfortable coach from Zurich to Lucerne. The route between the two cities, which are among the largest in Switzerland, already offers beautiful views of Swiss nature and the deep blue Lake Lucerne. Of course, these impressions can be captured during a photo stop before the journey continues to the center of Lucerne

An experienced tour guide will show you the most important attractions of the city during the ride through the city center. Afterwards, you will have time on your own to visit this wonderful old town on foot. The famous Chapel Bridge with its medieval paintings, the baroque Jesuit Church, the City Hall and the truly impressive Culture and Convention Center (KKL), located directly on the lake, should not be missed on your tour! The charming old town offers the advantage that the most important sights are all within easy walking distance. Let yourself be captivated by this enchanting city!

After exploring the old town, the tour continues by coach to Stans, the main town of the canton of Nidwalden. The Stanserhorn, the main sight of the beautiful community, towers here at 1898 m.a.s.l. above the houses of the village into the sky.

Now the ascent begins: with the comfortable and nostalgic funicular you climb the first stage of the ascent. The cable car takes you across green, flower-strewn alpine meadows to the valley station of the world's first convertible cable car! Thanks to the new cable car system, you float under the open sky towards the Stanserhorn, can feel the wind in your face and breathe in the fresh alpine air in front of a wonderful mountain backdrop

The cable car cabins are double-decker, with an elegant spiral staircase leading up to the open upper deck, which can accommodate 30 people. Experience sophisticated Swiss cable car technology firsthand! Once on the Stanserhorn, you are free to try out the various activities offered here

In the marmot park on the way to the summit, you can go in search of the cute little animals. The revolving restaurant "Rondorama" will spoil you with local food while you enjoy the panoramic view of the surrounding mountain peaks. In addition, several short hikes through the alpine nature with its beautiful flora and fauna are open to you. Enjoy the Stanserhorn in its full splendor!

After this impressive experience, the tour leads back to the valley to Stans, from where you take the public train to Lucerne. You will have some free time to explore the historic old town, try out the many shopping opportunities or relax with a cozy coffee in one of the charming cafes of the city.

In the late afternoon you will meet up with the tour guide again and start your return journey from Lucerne to Zurich. While the old town of Lucerne and the enchanting landscape of Central Switzerland pass by, you can already reminisce about this beautiful day.
