Lucerne ranks amongst the world's prettiest cities and is rich in sights and attractions. Contributing to Lucerne's cityscape alongside the world-famous Chapel Bridge and Water Tower are the Musegg Wall, the Jesuit Church, the Spreuer Bridge, the Lion Monument, the KKL culture and convention centre and a host of other sites of interest. Lucerne is best discovered on foot – so why not take one of our many guided tours?
Not for nothing is the world-famous timber bridge Lucerne’s most photographed destination, it being held in high esteem by visitors and residents in equal measure. Together with the Water Tower, the bridge forms a landmark in the townscape like no other attraction.
The very fact that a comparatively small city like Lucerne harbours an architectural masterpiece with international appeal is extraordinary: one would sooner expect to find an imposing edifice of this nature in metropolises such as London, New York or Paris.
The Swiss Museum of Transport takes a fascinating, interactive look at the development of transport and mobility on road, rail and water, not forgetting air and space travel. On display are more than 3,000 objects, simulators, multimedia shows and interactive exhibits occupying an area some 20,000 m2 in size.
The Bruch quarter ranks amongst the more vibrant parts of the city. This lively residential quarter is where you’ll find a wealth of culture, local handcrafts, bars and restaurants.
Enjoy the great view from the hotel terrace or stroll through Gütsch Wood, one of Lucerne’s green lungs.
