Lucerne

Lucerne ©
In north-central Switzerland, Lucerne represents a small city boasting a well-preserved old town.
Explore Lucerne's surroundings by going to Zurich (Museum of Art (Kunsthaus Zurich), Old Town, &more). There's still lots to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Lucerne, admire the striking features of Lucerne Station, see the interesting displays at Bourbaki Panorama, and get advice or help at KKL Luzern - Lucerne Culture and Convention Centre.

To see photos, maps, and other tourist information, use the Lucerne route planner.

Atlanta, USA to Lucerne is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 6 hours traveling from Atlanta to Lucerne. Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from Atlanta in November, with highs in Lucerne at 48°F and lows at 36°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Wed) to allow enough time to drive to Bern.
