Arrival and chocolate tasting

Lucerne is located in the heart of Switzerland and can be easily reached by public transport and car from all Swiss airports and major cities. The picturesque surroundings make even the journey to Lucerne an experience. Find out more about the different ways to get to Lucerne.

The Max Chocolatier shop is just a few minutes from the train station. What is conching, what does "Grand Cru" mean and who is this Max? An exclusive tasting in the lively boutique of Max Chocolatier in Lucerne is a feast for all senses. The chocolate experts will take you on a journey into the world of cocoa and impart knowledge about the quality and ingredients of the chocolate delicacies - delicious!

Lunch with a view

The dishes of the Scala Restaurant in the Art Deco Hotel Montana embody the lightness of the south and are influenced by the southern part of Switzerland, Italy, France and Greece.

Enjoy Johan Breedijk's creations and the spectacular panoramic view of the mountains, Lake Lucerne and the city of Lucerne, regardless of the weather. The terrace is open from spring to autumn and on mild winter days. In the cooler season, the heated winter garden is also available with the Montana winter barbecue offer.

Old Town and some shopping

After a delicious lunch it is time to move on. Stroll through the narrow alleys of Lucerne's Old Town, marvel at the historic houses with their imposing facades and the beautiful old town squares.

Excursion to Mount Rigi

Board a nostalgic steamboat in Lucerne, sit back and enjoy the trip to Vitznau. You will pass historic hotels, vineyards, small villages and famous mountains. Looking back, you will see the city of Lucerne with its Chapel Bridge, KKL Lucerne and, in the background, Mount Pilatus. In the direction of travel you can already see Mount Rigi - your destination today. Once you arrive in Vitznau, you change to the first cogwheel railway in Europe. Since 1871, the Rigi Railway has taken guests up to Rigi Kulm at 1,797 metres above sea level.

Once you arrive in Rigi Kaltbad, get off the train and continue your journey on foot. In about 30 minutes you reach the Chalet Schild on a beautiful, flat hiking trail, where you can enjoy a typical Swiss lunch made of regional products in a cosy atmosphere. Enjoy the fresh mountain air and let your soul dangle.

Distillery Stalder

Freshly fortified, you will start the return journey to Rigi Kaltbad, from where you take the cable car to Weggis. Once you arrive at the valley station, you will be picked up by a horse-drawn carriage. A quiet carriage ride takes the group to the farm of the Stalder family and later back. You will be initiated into the art of distilling schnapps by the master distiller and can taste the various distillates such as cherry, Träsch and plums. But also specialities like Vieille Prune, Äntebüsi and even the "Grüne Fee" (absinthe) are not missing. In the rustic "Stübli" you can enjoy Kafi-Schnaps with your aperitif and bread, cheese and smoked meat is served. Individual wishes (without carriage) and extended menus are possible.

Dinner and overnight

A boat chartered exclusively for you by the Lake Lucerne Navigation Company will then sail from Weggis to Meggen, where you and your group will enjoy a princely dinner in St. Charles Hall. After an aperitif on the terrace with a magnificent view over the lake, you will take a seat in the festive hall where you will be spoilt with culinary delights.

Excursion to Mount Titlis and lunch

The summit of Titlis is 3,020 metres above sea level - high enough to have snow even in summer. You will get a queasy feeling on the Titlis Cliff Walk when you walk over the suspension bridge at 3'041 metres above sea level and a 500-metre cliff.

Hungry from the adrenaline rush, you make yourself comfortable around the panorama restaurant. While you are enjoying typical Swiss food, a snow-covered mountain landscape invites you to dream.

Guided Monastery tour and learn how cheese is produced

The Benedictine monastery has stood in the centre of the mountain village of Engelberg since 1120. The heart of the monastery is the baroque monastery church with the high altarpiece and the largest organ in Switzerland. Today, around 30 monks still live and work in the monastery.

KKL Lucerne and overnight

Back in the city of Lucerne, you will visit one of its landmarks, the KKL Luzern. On the Behind-the-Scenes Tour you will learn many interesting details about the iconic architecture of this building and the world-famous acoustics of the concert hall.

After the tour, you can round off the evening in the restaurant Lucide with exquisite dishes and fine wines from around the world.
