Wilhelm Tell and show me more
A Wilhelm Tell Express ticket is a great way to see Lake Lucerne and Ticino. But a Swiss Pass not only includes this day trip (with a reservation), but the whole country. Funny, isn’t it? The best way to see Wilhelm Tell’s Switzerland may not be with a train ticket.
This trip really hits the mark for travelers in search of breathtaking scenery and adventure traveling through Switzerland on both land and water. This popular scenic route by train and boat requires a single reservation that can be booked up to 3 months in advance. Keep in mind this journey is seasonal, operating only between the months of May and October.
