Lucerne

Lucerne ©
In north-central Switzerland, Lucerne represents a small city boasting a well-preserved old town.
Jesuitenkirche and Altstadt Schaffhausen will appeal to history buffs. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Basel's Old Town and Munot. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Lucerne: Seealpsee (in Wasserauen) and Santis der Berg (in Urnaesch). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Glacier Garden (Gletschergarten), ponder the world of politics at Town Hall, make a trip to Kornmarkt, and examine the collection at Bourbaki Panorama.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Lucerne fast, fun, and easy.
