What To Expect

Lion Monument
Carved in stone, yet deceptively alive – Lucerne’s world-famous Lion Monument has been impressing visitors from near and far for very many years. The imposing stone lion, however, is more than “just” a monument. Depending on your point of view, it can be seen as a commemoration, a work of art or a memorial. And as a proud landmark of the city of Lucerne.

The “Lion of Lucerne” is nestled in a rocky grotto in a charming park setting in Lucerne. Ten new interpretation panels outline the history and multilayered significance of the monument. The information is in German and English, while French and Italian versions are available by scanning a QR code. The same link provides more in-depth information surrounding the eight thematic areas outlined by the interpretation panels.

The Lion Monument is visited by around 1.4 million people every year, though few of them are aware of the tragic story behind this imposing work; this can be remedied by taking a journey back in time.

Chapel Bridge
Not for nothing is the world-famous timber bridge Lucerne’s most photographed destination, it being held in high esteem by visitors and residents in equal measure. Together with the Water Tower, the bridge forms a landmark in the townscape like no other attraction.

The Chapel Bridge these days links the Lucerne Theatre on the south bank of the River Reuss with St. Peter’s Chapel on Rathausquai, passing the Water Tower on the way. The devastation that caught the world’s attention was one that no one would have wished to have happened.

15 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Lake Lucerne
You will enjoy some free time at the famous Lake Lucerne and you can also go for a boat ride (not included in our price) if you wish to do so. Lake Lucerne, Vierwaldstaetter See in German, is Switzerland’s fourth-largest lake, located in the center of the country. The lake is unusual because it has a very irregular shape, with many bends and turns and four arms. The shores of Lake Lucerne are partly formed by steep mountains like the Rigi and Pilatus, bordered by fabulous towns like Lucerne and Weggis, and are the site of Switzerland’s oldest history

Lovely trip

We are from india in our late thirties and we always saw Switzerland in the movies. Bollywood movies show Switzerland so regularly and i am a die hard fan of Yash Chopra movies. We did an organised tour with one indian tour operator and utilised our free day to do this trip on our own. We realised that in our next trip we should live at the shores of Lake Lucerne and not in Zurich. Anyways the trip was awesome. Very well organised. Thanks Viator and thanks to the agency Passion who was the local partner
The best experience of Switzerland
It was a long wait to get our visas for Switzerland but it was definitely worthwhile. Just loved this trip and happy to see the lion monument which i had seen in Indian movies. We bought loads of chocolates. Beautiful drive from Zurich, very safe and discreet driver. Highly recommend this trip if you want to see the city of Lucerne and it's lake. Though we didn't find the option to do a lake cruise with lunch, it was still a beautiful experience to do a boat ride which costed 20 CHF a ticket for nearly one hour.
Great trip

Great trip booked via our french travel agent. We could utilise the free time in Zurich to visit this city before our flight back to India. The drives in Switzerland are amazingly scenic. We went for a conference and didn't get much time to visit. This trip was awesome and and we felt absorbed in local ambience. Bravo to our driver sasha who did a great job
It is fantastic and adventures experience

Lovely weather and no rain... beautiful sunny day. Impossible to explain how lucky we felt on our trip from Zurich to lucerne. The trip was perfectly Organized. Clean cab with a punctual and good driver. I haven't yet understood if it's Lucerne or Luzern but it's worth visiting. We went in a luxury taxi with this private tour and the train station was so amazing to visit. Luckily our driver recommended us to visit the train station called Bahnhof. It's like a small city with shopping center. Lucerne is a great place for shopping.
Excellent trip

Beautiful lake of Lucerne, we took a boat in some free time. It's a must do for all. You can find the boats right opposite the famous watch and jewellery shop bucherer. You get a discount will some local passes. Else it's 25 CHF for one hour boat ride.
Be careful with your shopping spirit...they Money gets spent so fast at the beautiful city of Lucerne. Chocolates, watches, jewelery you have everything there. Our driver was from Prague but he knew the area very well. Nice family trip to resume it in few words.
