Information about Lucerne

The most populous city in Central Switzerland and the capital of the Canton of Lucerne, is Lucerne. Located on the shore of Lake Lucerne and within sight of Mount Pilatus and Rigi in the Swiss Alps, Lucerne is a popular destination for tourists. One famous landmark is the Chapel Bridge which was erected in the 14th century.

Mountain excursions are made accessible by cable-cars which show stunning picturesque panoramas of the regions. See Mount Pilatus, Rigi and Stanserhorn. Paddlewheel, steamboat and motor boats cruises can take you on a tour of Lake Lucerne. The Swiss Museum of Transport is the busiest museum in Switzerland. With its own IMAX theatre on sight, you will learn about transportation and communication. Check out Inseli Park to see more than 25 species of birds. The star of the attraction is Beo, a talking bird.


Restaurants and cafes are plentiful in Lucerne. Traditional favorite dishes include, The Luzerner Chugelipastete. A puff-pastry shell filled with veal and mushrooms in a creamy sauce. Also try Swiss Alpine Macaroni. This is made with potatoes, macaroni, cheese and onions and is usually served with apple sauce.
