As a travel destination, Switzerland offers not only pristine nature but also safety and a good health system. The country’s tourism service providers are also taking special measures to protect their guests, ensuring they enjoy their stay in Switzerland. The safety protocols of the individual sectors can be found here.
Bus and train services, mountain railways and cable cars as well as boat services on Lake Lucerne are back in operation, but in some cases still operate according to a reduced timetable. Please obtain information directly from the respective transport companies and consult the online timetable before each journey. As far as the use of public transport is concerned, the FOPH's hygiene regulations should be followed. From Monday, July 6, persons over the age of 12 will have to wear a mask in trains, trams and buses, as well as on mountain rail and cableways and on boats.
Border controls at all borders between Switzerland and the other Schengen states have been lifted. The normal entry requirements are applying again. Further information on the official regulations is published on the website of the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH). There are no travel restrictions in Nidwalden or within the Lake Lucerne Region.
