Set off for a scenic coach ride over the Albis Pass and along the shores of Lake of the Four Cantons. The coach will take you through beautiful countryside to the charming city of Lucerne. There will be a picture stop en route at the lake or at the Lion Monument, a giant sculpture of a dying lion carved into a sandstone wall commemorating the Swiss Guards who lost their lives in the French Revolution. On the short orientation drive through the city center, your guide points out the main sights such as the famous Chapel Bridge, the picturesque Jesuit Church, the Town-Hall and the impressive Concert and Congress Hall designed by French architect Jean Nouvel.

Alternatively, you can enjoy a relaxing boat ride on beautiful Lake Lucerne or an extended stroll with nice souvenir shopping in the medieval streets of the lovely city. In the evening, you meet your guide again for the coach ride back to Zurich.
