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?
Lucerne is a city of nature. The mountains as well as the lake are omnipresent and inspire the urban art couple Queenkong in their work. They enhance the quarters with street art.
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 Hirschmatt’s blend of little shops and boutiques, galleries, restaurants, cinemas, bars, clubs, hotels and apartments makes it a lively and colourful quarter.
The walk from the station alongside the lake to the Hotel Seeburg takes 50 minutes. This urban walk leads past the landing stages and over the Seebrücke bridge to arrive at Lucerne’s lakeside promenade.
