In a perfect setting by the shores of Lake Lucerne, flanked by Mount Rigi and Mount Pilatus, this beautiful city in Central Switzerland remains one of the most popular tourist destinations in Switzerland. Walk through the Old Town and marvel at the painted facades and historic buildings. Enjoy a stroll through narrow cobbled streets lined with shops selling traditional Swiss goods.
Or walk across the river on the famous wooden ‘Kapellbrücke’ (Chapel Bridge) with its triangular paintings, some of which date back to the 17th century. Other places of interest include the impressive Lion Monument, made of natural sandstone and the Glacier Garden. There are several museums – don’t miss the Transport Museum, which is regarded as one of the most comprehensive in Europe and well worth a visit.
