About Lucerne

Originally a small fishing village, this now bustling festival city stretches across the Reuss River on the western edge of Lake Lucerne and provides the perfect base from which to explore the many other parts of Switzerland. The centre of Lucerne is a pedestrianised area of cobbled streets lined with houses, shops and hotels painted in the medieval style and/or decorated with displays of flowers.

It is easily possible to immerse yourself in this town, enjoying its magnificent landscapes and strolling along its quays. Lucerne is quite charming and a wonderful place to shop. While wandering the narrow streets that feed the city’s wide open squares, you can enjoy a multitude of shops and boutiques displaying all manner of exquisite items. There is something on offer here to suit every wardrobe, every palate and every home. There is something here, to suit everyone. 

Lucerne is the Capital of the area known as Central Switzerland. Its position provides it with an awe inspiring backdrop of the Rigi, Pilatus and Stanserhorn mountains. The town of Lucerne is one of Switzerland's “must sees”, dating back to the 8th century. It is home to a wealth of  gable paintings and medieval architecture, with the world famous Chapel Bridge forming its delightful centrepiece. Historic houses enclose picturesque town squares and all around you are featured, works of art of one form or another, from a lion, hewn from a rock face, to a huge circular painting which dates back to 1881.

Lucerne is a typical and traitional Swiss town but whilst steeped in history, it is forward thinking and vibrant. It features a modern infrastructure with an extensive and well-run public transport system serving a wide range of shops, office buildings, cinemas, museums, theatres, restaurants and clubs. Another feature and major attraction in the town is the futuristic Culture and Convention Centre or KKL. Designed by Jean Nouvel, the KKL stands on the bank, looking out over Lake Lucerne and is one the modern architectural highlights of the town.

Lucerne is a town of festivals and these events take place regularly, throughout the year. Chief among them are the aptly named, Lucerne Festival, the Luzerner Fasnacht, the International Comics Festival, the Blue Balls Festival, the Summer Night Festival or Luzernfest and the Lucerne Blues Festival. These present the opportunity for locals and visitors alike, to hear world-class classical music, witness  remarkable firework displays and take part in Carnival done Swiss style.

The two largest Swiss supermarket chains are represented here, they are the Migros and the more familiarly named Coop and store opening times are usually from 8.30 am to 6.30 pm. Handily, these opening times also extend into most weekends and many bank holidays. Here you can pick up local Swiss favourites like Rösti, which are hash browns traditionally served with Bratwurst or Zürcher Geschnetzeltes, which is  chopped veal in a mushroom cream sauce, served with fried egg or melted cheese, as well as the ubiquitous Toblerone.
