Lucerne during the Christmas season becomes a contemplative city of lights. Despite difficult times, Christmas will definitely take place. Even this year, Lucerne is waiting with some highlights and events during Advent. Shorten your waiting time until Christmas Eve on our Christmas tour, enjoy music performances at the International Christmas Forum “Venite” or get inspired by handmade gift ideas at the Lucerne Christmas and Crafts Market.
Join us on a stroll through Lucerne. The Pine Boughs and Bright Lights tour through the festively decorated city helps pass the time more quickly in the run-up to Christmas and sheds light on some of the local seasonal customs.
Enter the Advent spirit by attending an event or concert or by enjoying a meal out.
At the beginning of the new year, the leading hotels in Lucerne, the Luzern Hotels association, the Swiss Hotel Management Academy, the ALI Fund of the city of Lucerne and Lucerne Tourism usually organise a huge New Year’s firework display over the bay of Lake Lucerne. This year the event unfortunately had to be cancelled due to the situation around the coronavirus. We are looking forward to the event on 1 January 2022!
