In working out my calculations on whether the Swiss Pass makes sense, I'm not sure what does the Swiss Pass cover for day trips to Mt Titlis, Pilatus and Rigi. I had a look at their respective websites, and it seems like
Mt Rigi - all trips (rail rides, cruise, cogwheel trains) are covered by the Swiss Pass
Mt Titlis / Pilatus - Train / ferry ride from Lucerne to Engelberg / Alpnachstad are covered by the Swiss Pass. But up the mountain, there are separate tickets to purchase and these can be quite costly.
Is this correct? I have heard of the Tell Pass but I'm not sure if it covers more. And since I'd only be in Lucerne for a short 2 days, the 5-day Tell Pass does not seem to maximize value.
By the way, does anyone care to share your favourite activities around Lucerne? Lets say, your favourite food / restaurant, any interesting factories (glassblowing?), your favourite views etc? I'm still in the midst of planning the Lucerne and inputs will be most appreciated. Thank you!
