Surrounded on all sides by snowy peaks and shimmering lakes, gorgeous Lucerne is an ideal base from which to discover the Swiss Alps. Here are some options for unforgettable outdoor adventure across the peaks, valleys, and villages of Switzerland.

Mt. Pilatus — 10 miles (16 km) from Lucerne
Nestled by the shores of beautiful Lake Lucerne, 6,982-foot (2,128-meter) Mt. Pilatus attracts visitors looking for close-up views over the jagged peaks and ridges of the Alps. Hop aboard the Pilatus Railway—the world’s steepest cogwheel railway—and reach the summit via a spectacular gondola ride for sweeping views over Lucerne below.

Mt. Rigi — 14 miles (22 km) from Lucerne
Known as the “Queen of the Mountains,” Mt. Rigi towers 5,899 feet (1,798 meters) over the peaceful waters of Lake Lucerne, Lake Lauerz, and Lake Zug. Take the historic Rigi Railways train and aerial cable car for impressive valley views, and combine your visit with a relaxing Lake Lucerne cruise.

Mt. Titlis — 25 miles (41 km) from Lucerne
Take the aerial cableway from the Alpine village of Engelberg to the summit of Mt. Titlis, and admire uninterrupted views across the Swiss Alps from an impressive 10,623 feet (3,238 meters) above sea level.

Jungfrau — 52 miles (86 km) from Lucerne
If it’s the ultimate Alpine view you’re after, you can’t get higher than the “Top of Europe” observation deck on Jungfraujoch, teetering at an incredible 11,332 feet (3,454 meters). Ascend the mountain to Europe’s highest railway station and gaze out over the continent’s longest glacier—the incredible Aletsch Glacier—from the Sphinx Observation Terrace.
