Unforgettable view over the surrounding mountains and lakes. Time at leisure for lunch (optional) or to hike to the summit and enjoy the breathtaking view over the Swiss Alps and the lake. Descent on the world's steepest cogwheel railway* (48% gradient) to Alpnachstad, followed by a lovely boat ride* (1 h) to Lucerne. Return to Zurich by coach.
