Lucerne holidays

Set on the shores of Lake Lucerne and flanked by Mount Rigi and Mount Pilatus, this beautiful city remains one of the most popular destinations in Switzerland.

Walk through the old town and marvel at the historic buildings with their painted facades. The narrow cobbled streets are lined with shops selling traditional Swiss goods while the wooden Kapellbrücke (Chapel Bridge) features triangular paintings, some of which date back to the 17th century.

For breathtaking panoramic views of the city, the Alps and the lakes, take the mountain railway to the top of Mount Rigi, the ‘Queen of the Mountains’. With the Swiss Travel Pass, you can travel to the top free of charge.
