We left Altdorf by local bus to Flueelen at the Lake Lucerne (Vierwaldstaetter See).
The route is served several times per hour by bus number 1 of the bus company Auto AG Uri. The trip takes only about 10 minutes.
Our SBB train tickets were also valid on the bus, so that we didn't have to buy any bus tickets, which are available from the driver.
With just less than 9000 inhabitants, Altdorf is a relatively small town comfortably nestled at the foot of the local mountains of the canton Uri.
It can easily be explored on foot and as usual in most Swiss towns, yellow signs show the walking distances to the nearby places of interest in the surrounding region.
We came to Altdorf by train from Zurich which took only about 75 Minutes with one change of trains in Zug.
During the day Altdorf is at least hourly served by a Swiss suburban train from Zug via Schwyz to Erstfeld.
Altdorf's train station is situated about 1 km south west of the city centre. The street Bahnhofstrasse links the train station with the heart of the town.
