These trains are remarkably comfortable and easy to use! My husband and I purchased the rail pass with first class but, a lot of the smaller trains going into the towns don’t have it. We still found them roomy and comfortable! It was really nice...More

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.

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.

Looks like it does not operate from December to March (checked time table section of citytrain.ch website). This is an answer 11months after! Hope it helps you and/or others.
