LUCERNE

LUCERNE PEARL OF SWITZERLAND 

 

Thanks to its impressive mountain panorama, its lakeside setting, its charming historic centre and accessibility to limitless excursions, Lucerne (Luzern in German) has become a very prominent destination of the Swiss Alps.

 

 

The impressive medieval Chapel Bridge forms the centrepiece of Lucerne’s townscape and is considered to be one of the oldest covered wooden bridges in Europe.

Lucerne city espresses its beauty through its squares, churches, well maintained historic town houses, decorated with frescoes and a romantic car-free centre.

 

A magic historical center with the most beautiful bridge of the Alps

 

Here, tradition and modernity stand side-by-side, as the town has also earned itself a reputation for innovative design. The futuristic Culture and Convention Centre (KKL), designed by leading French architect Jean Nouvel, is one the architectural highlights of the town. The KKL is also the landmark for the «Lucerne: Festival City», a venue which organizes a wide variety of cultural events throughout the year.


Lucerne is the ideal starting point for many excursions to the highlights of central Switzerland. A trip up one of Lucerne’s regional mountains, the Pilatus or the Rigi – the queen of mountains – is a must. That said, an adventure up the Stanserhorn, the Bürgenstock or a steamship cruise on Lake Lucerne with its many bends would be equally thrilling.
