Spellbinding meadows with bursts of flower, baroque churches, barren canyons and romantic alpine walks are just some of the things that make up picturesque Central Switzerland. On land, hundred year old toy-like mountain trains chug their way around impossibly stunning landscapes, while on water, steamboats effortlessly glide across huge lakes. If you could frame it and take it home with you, your coach tour would be perfect.
The region's focal point is historical Lake Lucerne, with its baroque architecture, rambling trails, museums and lakeside resorts. The town of Lucerne, overlooked by Mount Pilatus and home to Chapel Bridge, offers a gorgeous location, while the towns of Vitznau and Weggis offer breathtaking cog railway and cable car journeys that ascend Mount Rigi. Explore alpine paths that are there for the walking, or see Giswil in the southwest by horse-drawn carriage or from the saddle of a mountain bike.
