Things To Do in Lake Lucerne

The Lion Monument, aka the Lion of Lucerne, is a rock relief commemorating Swiss Guards massacred in 1792 during the French Revolution. The giant sculpture is 6 m high and 10 m long. The upright wall of rock is the remains of a quarry exploited over centuries in the building of Lucerne. The statue sees a regal lion dying from a spear wound which is marked by a shield bearing the emblem of the French monarchy. Mark Twain once described the monument as “the most mournful and moving piece of stone in the world.” Standing there, it is impossible not to feel a sense of grief and wonder. It's a truly moving experience.

Bridge
The Capel Covered Bridge and the Octagonal Water Tower are landmarks in Lucerne and even Switzerland, and often appear on postcards. Built in 1332, the Kappel Covered Bridge connects the two sides of Lucerne. It is the old wooden covered bridge in Europe. It was rebuilt after the fire in 1993 and has been leading to the octagonal water tower of the representative of Lucerne. Like the Museg City Wall, this bridge and water tower are also part of the Lucerne fortifications.

Hiking
At the forefront of the Alps, Mt. Rigi is known as the “Queen of the Mountain” and is a famous observatory in central Switzerland. Since ancient times, it has been a famous place to watch the sunrise and sunset. From the observation deck on the top of the mountain, you can enjoy panoramic views of the Alps and extend to the Black Forest in Germany and the plains of France. In the early 19th century, cultural celebrities such as Weber, Mendelssohn, and Victor Hugo visited here. In 1864, Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom also visited the Mt. Rigi.

Lucerne’s sights are concentrated around the old town hall, such as the 17th century old town hall, the Chapel Bridge and the 17th century Jesus Church. You can stroll through the old town where the medieval flavor still exists, and transfer to art galleries and museums. If you have more time, you can visit the lakeside museum, or do sunbathing by the lake, and deepen the beauty of Lucerne. The land is printed in my heart.

As you look up at the Kappel Covered Bridge in Lucerne, you can see the Mount Pilatus where the legends of dragons are told. It is magnificent. In Lucerne, there are even Pilatus Street and Pilatus Radio, which shows people's love for the mountain. Mount Pilatus has become a famous attraction with its steep mountaineering railroad tracks and the “Golden Tour”. At the top of the mountain, you can look south from the peaks of the Alps and turn to the north. The sights can reach the German Black Forest through countless lakes. There are also many easy hiking trails on the top of the mountain including the Dragon Road.
