Traveling to Kriens

We are leaving Lucerne and traveling to Kriens where we will use the cable car or cog railway to our hotel. Is it better to take a bus or train?

That all depends on where you have to be.

The best thing to do is to use the trip planner on www.sbb.ch. There you just enter the street address of your hotel as destination, and the system will give you a detailed itinerary to get there .

Hi Diane B

Bus no. 1 brings you from the railway station to Kriens Lindenplatz form where you need to walk (10 minutes) to the gondolas (Pilatus Bahnen).

Are you doing the roundtrip? If you would be take the boat from Alpnachstad to Lucerne (golden roundtrip), I am sure you will like it.

We are just doing a oneway trip. From the map, it looks like a car or bus would be a lot shorter than the train. Thank you.
