Lucerne is probably the most famous Swiss city. Surrounded by mountains and at the end of Lake Lucerne, the city is the starting point for numerous excursions.
The Lucerne cityscape is characterized by the covered, medieval Chapel Bridge, which, with its gable paintings, is one of the oldest covered wooden bridges in Europe. Another landmark of the city is the Musegg Wall, which has been preserved in its original fortified form with the exception of one tower.

Historic houses decorated with frescoes line picturesque squares in the car-free old town, such as the Weinmarkt. Lucerne is a city of squares and churches. The Jesuit Church from the 17th century is considered the first sacred baroque building in Switzerland and the two towers of the Hofkirche are an integral part of the cityscape. The dying lion, which was carved into the rock to commemorate the heroic death of the Swiss who fell in the Tuileries in 1792, is one of the most famous monuments in Switzerland.

Martin is a gem!!

We spent a wonderful day enjoying the city of Lucerne with Martin. His travels and adventures were as interesting as the Tuen itself! We had an easy train ride from Zurich followed by an easy paced and informative walking tour. We took some time for lunch and shopping, followed by a cruise around the lake. I highly recommend this tour. You won't be disappointed.

Uli was awesome! We enjoyed his friendly nature and his stories. His descriptions of the places we saw and the history behind them was very interesting!

Michael Garrood was a phenomenal guide. My father and I were the only ones on this particular tour, so it was what we wanted to do and when. When we wanted to stop and rest, we did. He gave us history information on Lucerne and on the way from
Zurich. We really appreciate his guidance!
