Positioned at the heart of Switzerland, Lucerne is a stunning lakeside city.
Its old town is as lovely as a children’s book, with plazas and colorful half-timber houses.
Posing over the old town is the 14th-century-old Museggmauer. It's one of the longest and best-preserved fortifications in Switzerland.
This 14th-century-old wooden footbridge is the centerpiece of Lucerne’s townscape.
It connects the Old Town on the northern bank with the New Town on the opposite side. Together with the octagonal Water Tower, they become Lucerne’s most recognizable symbol.
Calm and pristine, Lake Lucerne is the city’s piece-de-resistance.
Encircled by an impressive mountainous setting, this cobalt-blue lake extends over 114 km². It passes through four cantons.
Every day, boats ply between the villages and towns around the lake.
