A chat by the fountain

Water tour through Lucerne
Map
Lucerne is characterised by water – first as a fishermen’s village, later as a place of trade and today as a world-renowned tourist destination. Water as a source of food, safe transport route, driving force or recreational space. At one time it was a fishing village, then a trading site and today it is a world famous tourism destination.

Hear, smell and feel

A touch of Lucerne
Map
Touching allowed! Touch Gothic lancet windows, feel the cobblestones under your feet and the water vapour on your skin. The gnarled beams of the Spreuer Bridge “tell of” bygone days, while death grimly smiles from the pictures in the gable. More

In search of wine

For epicures
Map
Wine and und Lucerne constitute a symbiosis: not merely at the Wine Market, where international vintages were also traded in addition to wines from the Lucerne region and Swiss wines. We search for the “juice of the vine” and make sure that your throat will not remain dry. More
