Babbling brooks and clear lakes, green hills and snow-white mountains, fascinating insights and breathtaking views – welcome to the heart of Switzerland. The landscape between Lucerne, Andermatt and Schwyz is bursting with beauty, contrasts and surprises. The mild climate of Weggis invites you to kick back and relax beneath the palms. Europe’s first rack railway climbs from Vitznau to Rigi, the queen of the mountains, and the steepest rack railway in the world climbs up the Pilatus, Lucerne’s local mountain. William Tell, Rütli meadow, the founding cantons, the transport museum, the CabriO cable car, the Entlebuch UNESCO biosphere reserve, Titlis and much more all make this region around Lake Lucerne an utterly special part of Switzerland with no equal.
