A Tour de Suisse

By Linda Tancs

The scenery from Lucerne to Locarno is just as dramatic as the telling of the legend of Switzerland’s William Tell.  No wonder, then, that a rail journey between these two destinations is named the William Tell Express.  Beginning with a three-hour boat cruise on Lake Lucerne (host to the storybook Chapel Bridge), the panoramic train trip begins at Flüelen, winds its way through the Reuss Valley, traces the Gotthard line and meanders through picturesque villages en route to Locarno.  Forget about the apple shot.  On this journey you’ll find the money shot for sure.
