Overview of the Tour
Why is it so important to be on time in Switzerland? How many languages do the Swiss speak? Are we all rich? On this cultural bike tour of Lucerne, you will discover how and why the Swiss people think and behave differently from the rest of the world. All the while, cruising in and around Lucerne on our specialized electric cargo bikes. The tour has five stops, each offering a different perspective on the fascinating traditions and stereotypes of the nation and its citizens.
The tour starts at the Caritas Velostation, next to Lucerne’s Central Train Station. From there, we will ride outside of the city towards Horw, passing stunning historical buildings and continuing to an old railway track near one of the wealthiest areas of Switzerland－the not-so-touristy side of the city. As we reach Lake Lucerne, we will take a break and grab a typical Swiss snack while enjoying a magnificent view of Mount Pilatus and the stunning Swiss Alps. After enjoying the vista and taking a couple of pictures, we’ll cruise around the Horwer Peninsula along a safe street with further spots to take more photos of the impressive landscape. We will end the tour back at the Caritas Velostation, with an official immigration test, where you’ll have the chance to secure your own Swiss passport. Feel free to ask your guide for any local tips before continuing to tour the city feeling more like a local than when you started the tour.
