Another of Switzerland’s picturesque lake towns that’s set against the backdrop of the stunning Alps, Lucerne is a dream destination for any traveller. It’s got history, culture, a welcoming atmosphere and plenty of mountains to explore. Read on, to discover more of what Lucerne tours hold in store for you.
Lucerne is like a gateway to all of Central Switzerland’s wonders. It is set right on Lake Lucerne, at the point where the River Reuss takes its own path. The surrounding mountains include popular destinations like Rigi, Pilatus and Stanserhorn.
Summers are peak Lucerne tourism season, with sunny skies to enjoy the town and all its offerings. The shoulder seasons of spring and fall can also be enjoyable, though there’s a slight increased chance of rain. Winters get chilly, though winter sports and snow-activities make it worthwhile.
The heart of the city is medieval, with the still-standing Museggmauer wall of fortification, the Old Town Hall and exquisite Chapel Bridge. But Lucerne has embraced modernity too, with plenty of exciting art and music festivals throughout the year. And then there’s all of that Alpine wonder that’s intrinsically part of the town. Riding the trains, sitting by a lake, chancing upon relics — it’s all in a Lucerne day!
While in Lucerne, don’t miss out touring the lake — one of the great ways to see the city and its nearby attractions.
