First trip to Switzerland!

I'm traveling to Switzerland for the first time at the end of this month. I will be staying with family friends in Geneva and they will be taking me on a tour of the country. We will be making stops in Luzern and Waltensburg for sure. Any suggestions about what to see? I am interested in historical places and taking in Switzerland's beautiful landscape.

Thank you for the help!

Luzern is a great way to start! You will enjoy the old city, I'm sure. Take a boat ride if you have time.

You must ascend one of the major mountains - Jungfrau for preference. But it can only be done on clear days since otherwise the top is wreathed in clouds and you can see nothing.

Ask your friend for the best plant to do this - don;t know Waltensburg.

Please don't try going to Jungfraujoch from Lucerne, it's too far for a day trip from Lucerne. Think about Titlis it's only about 45 minutes to Engleberg by train and you will have a better idea of weather conditions.
