Overview

Lucerne, the gateway to central Switzerland

Lucerne, the birthplace of tourism

Lucerne is famous worldwide for the beauty of its site. Nestled in lush hills on the banks of Lake Lucerne, it offers a unique panorama that stretches from the Righi to Pilatus. With its 60,000 inhabitants, is the eighth city of Switzerland. If we add to this figure the population of the city, built in conjunction with the city, the number of inhabitants is multiplied by three. Because of its size, its central location and its economic potential, Lucerne can be considered as the capital of Central Switzerland. Lucerne is one of the tourism capitals of the world, located in the heart of Switzerland and attracting more than 2.5 million visitors each year.

About Switzerland


In Lucerne, you can walk around the Old Town and enjoy the narrow streets, colorful squares, the old city wall, the wooden Chapel Bridge and many other fascinating sights. With the Picasso Museum, the Bourbaki Panorama, the dying lion monument, the Jardin des glaciers and excursions in the old town, Lake Lucerne and the surrounding mountains destinations (Pilatus and Righi), Lucerne is one of the most visited cities in the world.

Try the Luzerner Chügelipastete, a puff-pastry shell filled with diced veal and mushrooms in a creamy sauce, which is the probably the best of what the local cuisine has to offer.

In the city centre of Lucerne, you’ll be able to get the most prestigious brand of watch or jewellery, fashion or stylish accessories.
