What to see in Lucerne

Lucerne, nestled by the majestic Swiss Alps and Lake Lucerne, is a charming city where natural beauty meets rich history. Its medieval old town with frescoed buildings and iconic Chapel Bridge creates a picturesque setting. Outdoor adventures in the surrounding alpine landscapes are complemented by cultural treasures and serene lakeside views.

Located just a short distance from Lucerne's city centre, the Swiss Museum of Transport is a captivating attraction that offers a fascinating journey through Switzerland's transportation history. This vast museum is not only informative but also highly interactive, making it an excellent destination for visitors of all ages. The museum's extensive exhibits cover various modes of transportation, from early horse-drawn carriages to cutting-edge aviation technology. You can explore vintage automobiles, locomotives and even a remarkable collection of historic aircraft. The highlight for many visitors is the chance to climb into the cockpit of a vintage Swiss Air Force jet.

Mount Pilatus, often referred to as the Dragon Mountain due to its local legends, is a majestic peak that overlooks Lake Lucerne. It's easily accessible from the city and offers a day of adventure and breathtaking vistas. Start your journey with a boat ride across Lake Lucerne to the base of Mount Pilatus, where you can hop on the Pilatus Railway, the steepest cogwheel railway in the world. This exhilarating ascent takes you through lush alpine landscapes, providing spectacular views of the surrounding region.

Lucerne is home to some remarkable historical sites, and two of the most poignant are the Lion Monument and the Bourbaki Panorama. The Lion Monument, sculpted by Bertel Thorvaldsen, is a solemn and powerful work of art. It commemorates the Swiss Guards who lost their lives defending the Tuileries Palace during the French Revolution. The monument depicts a dying lion and is carved into a sandstone rock face, with a tranquil pond in front. It's a symbol of courage and sacrifice and a moving site to visit. The Bourbaki Panorama is a massive circular painting that immerses visitors in a vivid depiction of the Franco-Prussian War. Painted by Edouard Castres, the panorama offers a 360-degree view of the war's aftermath, as French soldiers, led by General Bourbaki, sought refuge in Switzerland. The realistic artwork, combined with sound and lighting effects, creates an immersive experience that transports you back in time.
