Experience Swiss history by boat and train: from Lucerne along the places that were important in early Swiss history, via the Gotthard to Ticino.

From picturesque Lucerne, you travel by boat on Lake Lucerne to Flüelen past the Rütli and Tellsplatte. You then enjoy the journey in the 1st class panorama car as the train winds its way up from an altitude of 470 to 1,100 metres on the Gotthard route. The trip continues through the Gotthard Tunnel and on into the varied Mediterranean countryside of Ticino. Welcome to the palm trees.
