What You Can Expect

Make your own way to Lucerne's House of Chronoswiss, home to one of Switzerland’s most prestigious watch brands, in the morning. Head inside and observe the live watchmaking at the hands of the highly skilled craftspeople. Discover the intricacies of handmade dials, see painstaking processes such as enamelling in action, and if you wish, purchase one of the unique mechanical wristwatches.

After around an hour, leave and take the short lakefront stroll to Pier I on the edges of Lake Lucerne. At the pre-fixed time, board the elegant boat — a classic paddleboat steamer in the summer months — and enjoy a scenic cruise over the sparkling lake. Absorb the wonderful mountain-and-pasture views on route and after around an hour on the water, hop ashore at the pretty village of Vitznau.

Board the nearby Vitznau cogwheel train at the pre-arranged time, and enjoy a picturesque, 30-minute ride up Mt Rigi, known as the ‘Queen of the Mountains.’ Step out at the summit, inhale the pristine mountain air and enjoy ample time to take in the majestic, 360-degree panoramas down across the lake and snow-tipped Alps.

When it’s time, ride the train back down to Vianitz, and catch the allocated boat departure to the Swiss Museum of Transport on the outskirts of Lucerne. Disembark and walk to the museum's Swiss Chocolate Adventure attraction.

Head inside, settle into a fun, traveling chocolate-cube cart and enjoy an exciting, 30-minute sensory and multimedia ride through the world of Swiss chocolate. Learn about the history and stages of chocolate making, enjoy a tasting, and finish at the shop where you’ll have the option to make and keep your own chocolate bar.

Afterward, catch the pre-arranged boat departure back to downtown Lucerne, finishing your tour when you step ashore.

The clock making was something anyone could do by walking into the store. The rest of the trip was great. Surprisingly, the chocolate adventure was very well done and informative. All in all, a great day! My advice is to print your voucher because the WiFi didn't always work.
