The Wilhelm Tell Express links two of Switzerland's most scenic regions: Central Switzerland and Ticino. Two daily connections from Central Switzerland to Ticino and in the opposite direction.
The trip starts in Lucerne as you board a nostalgic paddle steamer or motor vessel and cruise to Flüelen on Lake Lucerne in about 3 1/2 hours.
In Flüelen, only a few steps away from the pier, our guests board air-conditioned, first-class panorama cars of the Swiss Federal Railways. The trip continues through the awesome Reuss Valley with its deep ravines and precipitous cliffs. The world-famous Gotthard line swiftly climbs from 470 to about 1100 metres above sea level to finally enter the 15-kilometer long Gotthard tunnel in Göschenen, Europe's most important north/south gateway.
The Wilhelm Tell Express crosses breathtaking cantilevered bridges and passes charming villages on its way to Bellinzona. From here, the next leg is to Locarno or Lugano.
Route: Luzern - Fluelen - Locarno/Lugano
This journey also travels in the reverse direction.
