By train from Lucerne to Kuessnacht
You may take the train from Lucerne to Kuessnacht, it is just a short distance and plenty of trains will go there all day .Hohle gasse is a bit outside of the village, BUT plenty of signposts will lead you there. The distance to the lake is maybe 800 meters and the local bus goes there as well and stops at the stop : Hohle Gasse
In the building above the bus-station named "Hohle Gasse" there is the museum, I mentioned in my other tips !
S3 takes about 38 minutes from Luzern / Lucerne to Kuessnacht am Rigi !
Make sure you search for Kuessnacht am Rigi !!
