Holidays in Lucerne

Location and orientation

Old town, river, lake and mountain united

Lucerne is the capital of the Swiss canton of the same name and offers a varied cityscape. Lucerne lies on the northwestern shore of Lake Lucerne on the banks of the Reuss. The Pilatus and Rigi mountains give the city a particularly natural impression.

Discover Lucerne's idyllic corners on foot

Public transport in Lucerne is well developed and all places worth seeing can be easily reached by bus. Nevertheless, it is recommended to discover the city on foot, as the core of Lucerne's old town is kept as a pedestrian zone and impresses with its impressive architecture.

Travelers and Activities

Lucerne for families

Lucerne is a city worth seeing for the whole family. In the Lucerne Museum of Transport, the history of all means of transport can be explored interactively and is an adventure for young and old. A boat trip on Lake Lucerne is a highlight for everyone and after visiting the old town, holidaymakers fall into bed tired but happy in their vacation rental in Lucerne.

Lucerne for athletes

Athletes will certainly be pleased about a trip to the Pilatus. After the trip with the world's steepest rack railway, there is a breathtaking panoramic view. On the Pilatus there are hiking trails from leisurely to alpine, to let everyone get their money's worth.

Top 5 travel tips for Lucerne

1st fleet shipping on Lake Lucerne

A boat trip from Lucerne on Lake Lucerne is a must for every visitor. Not only the scenic panorama around the lake and the clear water can be enjoyed. Other places with idyllic flair can also be explored at the berths of the ships. Or you can simply enjoy coffee and cake on deck.

2 Lucerne's Old Town is not just an invitation to go shopping

The heart of Lucerne's old town is ideal for leisurely walks, as the unusual and well-preserved architecture of the buildings is an absolute highlight of the city. Shops of all kinds, cafés and restaurants invite you to linger.

3. The chapel bridge convinces with its rustic architecture

Probably the best-known sight in Lucerne is the Chapel Bridge, which runs across the Reuss River near the old town. With a length of 202 metres, it is the second longest covered wooden bridge in Europe. But the Kapellbrücke gets its uniqueness from its history: In 1993 the bridge was destroyed by fire. Even today, traces of fire remind us of this catastrophe.

4 The Swiss Museum of Transport - an underestimated highlight

The name "Verkehrshaus" sounds unspectacular, but it is the largest and most visited museum in Switzerland. A large collection of locomotives, cars, ships and airplanes can be admired and interactively explored.

5th Swiss chocolate - irresistibly delicious!

Chocolate lovers get their money's worth in Switzerland - shops of renowned chocolatiers can be found in the shopping streets. The high-quality, tender chocolate with special recipes can be admired and tasted. It is a good idea to store a supply of chocolate in the apartment in Lucerne.

In Lucerne you should observe whether there is a cloud above Pilatus, because "if Pilatus has a hat, the weather will be fine and good" - according to a Lucerne legend.
