Lucerne
Lucerne
Lucerne means “City of Lights” and, according to legend, was established by an angel’s request. On the shores of Lake Lucerne with heartbreaking views of the Alps, Lucerne has been attracting tourists for centuries, prompting Mark Twain to observe that “the shops are packed with Alpine crystals. Photographs of scenery, and wooden and ivory carvings...Millions of them.” Stroll across the historic wooden Chapel Bridge, one of Lucerne’s landmarks, and if possible visit during the city’s carnival season, which features extravagant parades in which you march “where you like.”

Popular Attractions in Lucerne

Lion Monument
4.4/5
555 Reviews
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.
