Why Go on a Tour of Lucerne

The lovely city of Lucerne is located in the central part of Switzerland and has brought together the most beautiful things the country possesses: picturesque lake panoramas with rocky shores, high mountains with dazzling snow caps, and ancient architecture in the gingerbread-like style. Staying in Lucerne, everyone will find something to their taste, including medieval wooden bridges and fortress walls, numerous hiking trails, mountain skiing and sledges, romantic quays and cozy restaurants, as well as scenic lake cruises.

Luckily, time and destructive wars were merciful to Lucerne, giving the city a chance to turn into the cultural center of the whole country. The true reminder of the medieval power struggles is the well-preserved city wall, Musseg, with nine towers, four of which are open to the public, meaning that you have the opportunity to climb one of them to see the most breathtaking panoramas of Lucerne in the ring of majestic mountains. One more important highlight of the city is the Chapel Bridge, built in the 14th century, it is the most popular place in town.

Apart from the mentioned highlights, you may also enhance your Lucerne itinerary with a visit to the beautiful Town Hall set on the Kornmarkt Square. Being one of the finest embodiments of Renaissance, the edifice features a nice museum where the visitors can admire the unique collections of old furniture, works of art, and important historical documents.

To top it all, a trip to Lucerne will be incomplete without a visit to Mount Pilatus. The legendary summit is one of the most beautiful places in Switzerland, which offers a stunning panoramic view of 73 Alpine peaks if you visit the Mount on a clear day.
