Re: What would you suggest for first weekend trip?

Is this a weekend trip from Luzern? Do you want a romantic weekend away in particular?

What is your aim for this weekend away - plenty of spring hikes, some spring snowboarding/skiing, wellness... etc ?

It would help if you tell us what your interests are...

Yes that would help wouldn't it hahahaah....

Yes it would be a trip from Luzern

Romantic is good, anywhere pretty to look at, or with lots of culture!

Ticino (on the border with Italy) is beautiful, or a little further south, you could try Como. The Grand Imperiale is a nice hotel and you should book a table at Il Gatto Nero, a truly amazing restaurant in the foothills of Cernobbio, overlooking Como.

May be not your first trip but Italy - Venice or Firenze would certainly tick those boxes and are do-able in a weekend.

Get a boat across the lake of Luzern to the Rigi, then head up the Rigi with the funicular railway.

By that time there will be loads of snow and you'll love it.

Would you need to stay the night in Rigi or could you do it in a day?

Any other suggestions.... maybe somewhere in the South of France?

Thanks!
