Lucerne during the Christmas season becomes a contemplative city of lights, while its enchanting Christmas markets are brimful with handmade gift ideas. The scents of cinnamon and mulled wine accompany you on your tour through its alleys, and at the KKL Luzern you'll find a unique Christmas fairytale world complete with an ice rink offering views of the city, the lake and the mountains.
Looking for something nice for your nearest and dearest? Or do you just want to soak in the Christmas atmosphere? Visit Lucerne's markets this Advent.
In January, Lucerne becomes a place of encounters immersed in light. Artistic light installations illuminate numerous building facades and squares, bringing warmth into the wintery city.
The leading hotels in Lucerne are joining forces with the Luzern Hotels association, the Swiss Hotel Management Academy, the ALI Fund of the city of Lucerne and Lucerne Tourism on 1 January 2021 to organise a huge New Year’s firework display over the bay of Lake Lucerne; it starts at 8:15 p.m. The individual hotels are serving special menus, and gala cruises are offered on the lake.
