At the end of the 19th century this spectacular and innovative, historic railroad engineering and nearly miraculous construction of tunnels, loops and bridges conquered mountains and connected villages. The meter-gauge (in order to enable hairpin turns) Rhaetian Railways (RhB) pioneered train travel with the longest narrow-gauge network in Europe.
Lucerne has it all: the great transport museum, the first and the steepest cogwheel railways, a narrow-gauge panoramic train, and historic steamships on Lake Lucerne. Thanks to its attractions, its souvenir and watch shops, the impressive mountainous panorama and the nearby excursion mountains of the Rigi and Mt. Pilatus, the town is a destination for many travel groups on their journey through the Lake Lucerne Region.
Enjoy a relaxing, comfortable and rapid journey to Engelberg, an excellent day-trip destination.
The newly-refurbished 1st class panorama coach of Luzern-Engelberg Express offers a particularly comfortable journey and spectacular views.
The train will whisk you in just 47 minutes from the city, past Lake Lucerne and into the Engelberg valley, where you will pass through delightful villages nestling at the foot of increasingly steep and lofty mountains.
