Luzern City Small Group Tour and Lake Cruise

Lucerne is probably the most famous Swiss city. Surrounded by mountains and at the end of Lake Lucerne, the city is the starting point for numerous excursions. The Lucerne cityscape is characterized by the covered, medieval Chapel Bridge, which, with its gable paintings, is one of the oldest covered wooden bridges in Europe. Another landmark of the city is the Musegg Wall, which has been preserved in its original fortified form with the exception of one tower. Historic houses decorated with frescoes line picturesque squares in the car-free old town, such as the Weinmarkt. Lucerne is a city of squares and churches. The Jesuit Church from the 17th century is considered the first sacred baroque building in Switzerland and the two towers of the Hofkirche are an integral part of the cityscape. The dying lion, which was carved into the rock to commemorate the heroic death of the Swiss who fell in the Tuileries in 1792, is one of the most famous monuments in Switzerland.

Come on a walking tour to uncover the magic of Lucerne. The town is set against the majestic backdrop of the Alps, on the shores of Lake Lucerne. Several pretty bridges, steeples, fountains and frescoed facades will catch your eye on this walk, but Lucerne has so much more to offer than photo opportunities. You’ll begin at the train station and make a loop around the old town, visiting both sides of the Reuss river. Each site you visit has a story to tell, from the Chapel Bridge’s burning to the carnival celebrations. You’ll pass by wine, grain and pig markets too, each with its own unique character. From the markets, you’ll wander the cobbled streets to the Mill Bridge and find out about the castle on the hill. The tour ends with the Legend of the Wild Man and Lux Ritter, the craftsman who became mayor. By the end of our tour, I hope you firmly agree that Lucerne is a whole lot more than a beautiful photo!
