Best Things to do in Lucerne

The city of Lucerne is well known for its beautiful medieval architecture and its stunning location on the edge of Lake Lucerne amid snow-capped mountains.

Lucerne Old Town

The Old Town is just beautiful with its old buildings and bridges, narrow cobblestone alleyways and gorgeous medieval squares to explore.

Chapel Bridge

Built in 1333, Chapel Bridge is a medieval wooden footbridge that crosses the Reuss River, linking the Old Town with the right bank.

Dying Lion Monument

Another top attraction is the Dying Lion of Lucerne, one of the world’s most famous monuments, carved out of natural rock.

Swiss Transport Museum

The Swiss Transport Museum is located just by the lake and is all about things that go! Here you will learn all about planes, trains and automobiles and loads more! 

Lake Cruises

A must do is to take a cruise on Lake Lucerne with its sparkling blue water and surrounding snow-capped peaks.
