Lucerne is embedded within an impressive mountainous panorama with Rigi, Pilatus and Titlis, covered in a magical blanket of fluffy snow in winter.

Lucerne ranks amongst the world's prettiest cities and offers much to discover. Contributing to Lucerne's cityscape alongside the world-famous Chapel Bridge and Water Tower are the Musegg Wall, the Jesuit Church, the Lion Monument, the culture and convention centre KKL.
