Get to know Lucerne with Viator

Situated in the shadow of the snowcapped Mount Pilatus, where Lake Lucerne meets the Reuss River, Lucerne offers some of the best-preserved medieval architecture in all of Switzerland. A short wander in Lucerne’s compact Old Town reveals ornately frescoed edifices, meticulously preserved ramparts, and a covered wooden footbridge that traces its origins to the 14th century—as well as the rock-hewn Lion Monument that’s among the country’s most recognizable symbols.
