Several daily trains make the 27-minute trip to Altdorf from the region's biggest railway junction, Arth-Goldau, on their way south to Chiasso and eventually Milan. Call tel. 0900/300-300 for rail schedules.

The bus routes coming into Altdorf connect the town with mountain hamlets, which usually have no railway junctions of their own. In summer, a handful of buses connect it with Zurich's Hauptbahnhof, sometimes with a transfer in Fl├╝elen. Travel time from Zurich is about 1 1/2 hours. For bus schedules and information, call tel. 0900/300-300.

If you're driving from Brunnen on Lake Lucerne, continue south along N4.
