Switzerland – Lake Lucerne. Beautiful and full of opportunities for everyone.
Well known for its fjord-like feel and its beautiful surroundings, Lake Lucerne has stunning mountains which allow groups to spend a great amount of time outdoors whilst the weather is mild.
A boat trip by either motor boat or historic paddle steamer in what is Europe’s largest inland navigation system is simply a must for your group.
The lake’s location is great too. There are many internationally famous day trip destinations worth a visit:
• Titlis, with its Rotair gondola and the highest-altitude glacier in Central Switzerland
• The mountain railways of the region such as the one up on the Rigi – Queen of the Mountains
• The Pilatus – with a panoramic view of 73 Alpine peaks and home of the steepest cogwheel railway in the world
• The Stanserhornare, within reach from Lucerne by either boat or train by its unique CabriO cable car
The city of Lucerne is worth a trip all of its own. Take stroll down the Chapel Bridge – a symbol of Lucerne and the oldest covered footbridge in Europe – and enjoy the city’s unique festivals, which include a broad cultural and music programme for all.
And to top it off, a great hostel too. After an eventful day, the Lucerne Youth Hostel is an ideal and inexpensive option for overnight accommodation and board. As well as spacious communal areas, the 206-room hostel offers modern and functional rooms with two to six beds.
