The valley station of the cable car to Lucerne’s very own mountain Pilatus is less than a 15-minute bus ride away and Mount Rigi, which is featured on our cover, can be accessed via a spectacular boat trip and cogwheel railway ride. You’ll find all of these easily accessible mountains and more in our Mountains & Ski resorts chapter.
And even the city itself offers some winter pleasures. Taste the Swiss cheese specialities fondue and raclette, which locals usually only eat during the cold season, or go dancing every Saturday night (Nov - March) at the ice-skating disco at the city’s ice rink.
There’s plenty to do this winter in and around Lucerne with Lucerne in Your Pocket and we’re pretty sure you’ll agree once you get here. Enjoy!
