Epic Europe

LUCERNE

 

Lucerne owes its development firstly to its geographical location on the important north-south transport axis, sandwiched between the Swiss Plateau and the Alps at the threshold to Central Switzerland, and secondly to the uniquely picturesque scenery of this region.

 

The Lake Region with the city of Lucerne and the idyllic lakeside villages of Weggis and Vitznau on the sunny southern flank of Mt. Rigi offer a variety of experiences. The museums, theatres and festivals have all contributed to establishing Lucerne as a culture city, which elegantly accommodates both tradition and trend. Enjoy an excursion on a Belle Epoque paddle-steamer on Lake Lucerne, soak up pure nature on the close-by mountains and relax in the mild climate of the “Lucerne Riviera” with its leading wellness hotels.

 

The city of Lucerne is filled with history and culture, the Chapel Bridge, the Musegg Wall, the Lion Monument and the historic Old City form an exciting contrast to contemporary Lucerne: the KKL Luzern - museum and concert hall designed by Jean Nouvel, the abundance of restaurants and shops. The Lucerne Festival, with blues, jazz, and rock concerts throughout the year, or the splendidly colorful Carnival. The Rosengart Collection, the natural monuments in the Glacier Garden and the Swiss Museum of Transport are among the museum highlights. Immerse yourself in this city, stroll along the lakeside and get to know the legendary charm of Lucerne.

Just as fascinating as the charming city of Lucerne is the surrounding area. Excursion to the Alps in the region is, in fact, an age-old tradition. Traces of this tradition can be tracked while taking a ride on Europe’s oldest mountain railway, as it winds its way up Mt. Rigi or on the world’s steepest cogwheel train to the top of Mt. Pilatus. For more extreme adventure take revolving aerial cable car to the top of Mt. Titlis: at 3000 meters, it is the highest accessible peak in the region.

  • "Our family spent last Christmas in Zermatt on a bespoke Epic Europe ski trip. The special thought and care that they put into our holiday made it our best yet." - L.M.; CA USA
  • "Epic Europe has coordinated several corporate events for us over the past 5 years, and I cannot imagine a more professional operation to handle all of the details. From a team-building event for 50 people in a 17th-century castle atop a mountain pass, to marketing conferences and catalog shoots, their knowledge of the best locations in the Alps is second-to-none, and they are as good as it gets at being creative." - E.P., Lugano CH
  • "A day of heliskiing in Italy culminated with a sunset run off the Breuil saddle of the Matterhorn - one of the most thrilling runs of my life - and we left our tracks in a place where they remained for a week afterward, reminding us of the best day of skiing in our life!" - WG, CT USA
  • "I would have to say that Verbier and Zermatt might be the best places I have ever ridden a mountain bike, and I couldn't imagine going without the help of Epic Europe's guides. It was a dream trip for sure." - B.S., PA USA
  • "I have done trips in the Alps and surrounding regions with Epic Europe for the past 4 years, and every one has been unique and surpassed the last. The experiences that they deliver due to their personal relationships are a window into the real life in these incredible locations, and they share these friendships with us." - K.B., CT USA
  • “The team at Epic Europe created the most incredible trip for us, where everything came together seamlessly, and we never had to think about what came next - it just magically happened as if it was meant to be. That takes real talent, and they make it look easy." - B.N., WY USA
  • "Hiking in the Alps has always been on my bucket list, but I wasn't sure that a typical trip was my style. Epic Europe designed a custom route for our group, staying in the best little inns and hotels, and we felt like we had the trails to ourselves. I will come back again and again to explore new trails with their guides every year that I can!" - R.B., NY USA
  • "Epic Europe's custom road biking trip that they put together for my buddy's bachelor party was great - the right combination of killer rides, great hotels, and outstanding restaurants. Great guides, and overall a perfect trip." - A.S., London UK
