Lucerne E-Bike Guided Day Trip Itinerary
This Lucerne E-Bike Guided Day Trip has been designed to let you experience Switzerland by road at your own pace. Visit hidden gems around Lake Lucerne and marvel at the panoramic vistas of Lake Lucerne and surrounding peaks. Enjoy a 2-hour cruise on a 100-year-old steamer back to Lucerne.
Your guide will pick you up at 8:30 am at your hotel. If you’re not staying in Lucerne, you will meet them at Lucerne Torbogen.
The bikes we use make this tour very easy for everyone. (Note – according to Swiss Law, the minimum age for driving an e-bike is 16 years).
Riding an e-bike is diofferent than riding a normal bike, because you have a supporting electric drive system. thanks to that you’re never out of breath, you can chat, laugh and admire the views without worrying about pedaling up the hills.
Even people who normally do not ride bikes will feel comfortable driving an e-bike.
In Lucerne we will ride through town on dedicated bike lanes.
Then we ascend up to the Dietschiberg hill and stop for one of the best views of Lucerne. The trip continues through Lucerne’s first established golf course (1925) with great views of the surrounding Alps and countryside.
We cruise downhill on gravel roads and pass farm houses that sell locally produced food. Payment is with the honesty system: simply put money in the box with a slot. The non-alcoholic apple cider is a favorite.
The route continues through small villages on narrow bike roads. Then we shift to a dedicated bike road with Mt. Rigi and the central Swiss Alps as your view. We stop off at a local water fountain, top off our water bottles while watching the horses grazing at the nearby horse farm.
We then enter the small lakeside resort of Kuessnacht am Rigi and avoid the traffic by taking side roads. Soon, we arrive at the historic “Hohle Gasse” where one can listen and see the William Tell story told by a unique audio-visual presentation. This is place where the legendary William Tell shot Gessler. There is also a historic William Tell chapel worth a stop and visit.
After another hour of riding through the small picturesque lanes of Swiss countryside, we board a lake steamer in Brunnen for a scenic and relaxing two-hour boat ride back to Lucerne.
We return to Lucerne around 5 pm.
