Wilhelm Tell Express
The Wilhelm Tell Express links two of Switzerland’s most attractive regions: Central Switzerland and Ticino. The trip
starts in Lucerne as you board a nostalgic paddle steamer or motor vessel and cruise to Flüelen on Lake Lucerne in
about 2,5 hours. While you enjoy a hot or cold dish in the first-class restaurant, you can watch sleepy bays,
picturesque villages and historic landmarks such as the Rütli and the Tellsplatte glide silently by on the starboard and
port side. In Flüelen, only a few steps away from the pier, board the 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 meters above sea level to finally enter the
15 kilometer long Gotthard tunnel in Göschenen, Europe’s most important north/south gateway. Countless spiral and
horseshoe tunnels, galleries and bridges testify to the remarkable achievements of the men who built this masterpiece
of civil engineering. Then, after the 10-minute tunnel passage, you’ll arrive in Ticino. In the Leventina Valley, the
Wilhelm Tell Express crosses breathtaking cantilevered bridges and passes charming villages on its way to Bellinzona.
Change here to continue your journey to Lugano. Overnight in Lugano.
