Lucerne is unique, you’ll love it! Centrally located, just an hour south of Zurich and Basel, it offers an incredible panorama. Lucerne lies at the western end of Lake Lucerne (Vierwaldstättersee) which is the geographical and spiritual heart of Switzerland. The city, as well, features the world-famous medieval Chapel Bridge (Kapellbrücke), connecting the old part of town to the new. The over 660-year-old wooden-covered bridge partially burnt down in 1993 but has been restored to its original condition. Another main draw of Lucerne is the Verkehrshaus (Swiss Transport Museum), Switzerland’s most popular museum! You’ll be charmed by Lucerne’s misty lake, by the snow-capped mountains rising above, and the many possibilities for excursions you have from here.
