Combine that scenery with the historic Old Town and charming landmarks like the Chapel Bridge, and you have a place worthy of praise. That should be all the motivation you need to ascend to the top of Mount Pilatus, where you'll get the impression you're on top of the world; be sure to look for views of this epic mountain as you fly into Zurich Airport (ZRH).
Transportation from ZRH
Lucerne flights almost always land at Zurich Airport, which is only 39 miles from most hotels in Lucerne. To get from ZRH to the city, an easy, quick, and cost-effective option is to take an IR train (InterRegio) from the Zurich Airport railway station, which is located underneath the Airport Centre. If you desire a more private form of transit, then hail a taxi outside your arrivals level or arrange a rental in the Airport Centre on Level 1. Of course, you can also hire a private bus or car if you want to truly relax before you start exploring all Lucerne has to offer.
Be wowed at the Swiss Museum of Transport, check out the stunning Culture and Convention Centre, and take in the views from Mount Rigi. Indeed, a trip to Lucerne is certain to be spectacular.
