Plan a Trip to Lucerne
Create your Lucerne itinerary in minutes
The picturesque compact city in Switzerland has a lot to show, so prepare to spend at least a couple of days wandering its colorful old town and taking a good look at the medieval architecture. Also, the Old Town, called Altstadt, is bordered by one-of-a-kind landmark - 870 meters of Museggmauer - a 14-century rampart built for defensive purposes, and now its watchtowers offer magnificent panoramic views of the Lake Lucerne, river, and mountains. When you are there, make sure to visit another 14th-century feature - the Kapellbrucke (Chapel Bridge), the wooden bridge that links the Aldstadt to the Reuss River’s bank.
