The quintessentially Swiss city of Lucerne is a lakeside idyll of cobbled streets, twisting spires and laid-back charm. Visit the medieval Old Town (known as the Altstadt to locals), wander across the gabled-roofed Kapellbrücke, visit some of the city’s many museums or relax on board a paddle steamer on Lake Lucerne, taking in the stunning alpine scenery dominated by towering Mount Pilatus.

Awash with museums, art galleries and over 80 annual festivals, Lucerne has earned the title of Switzerland’s cultural capital. This easy-going, picture-postcard city nestled on the banks of Lake Lucerne is home to stunning mountain panoramas, colorful traditional houses and an ancient covered wooden bridge that spans the river Reuss. Visit the Lion Monument, a moving tribute to the Swiss soldiers who lost their lives in the French Revolution, admire the ornate Jesuit church and take a cable car ride to the top of Mount Pilatus for stunning views of Lucerne, before descending on the world’s steepest cog railway.
