What We Love About Lucerne

Lucerne's natural beauty will leave you in awe the minute you step foot into this medieval town. From ancient castles to bright turquoise rivers, the jaw-dropping scenery will leave you absolutely spellbound! Located at the shores of Lake Lucerne, tourists are blessed with views of the famous Swiss Alps and the coursing rivers of Reuss. But what tourists really go for are the city's stunning medieval landmarks. Walking through structures like the Chapel Bridge and magical villages like Old Town Lucerne will surely take you back in time. If you've got a couple of hours to spare, venture up the Pilatus for stunning scenes of the city from up the snowy mountains!
