Here are our ranking of the Top 10 places to visit in Lucerne:
1. Mount Pilatus
It would be a shame, when in Lucerne, to miss a trip up Mount Pilatus, up the cableway from Kriens and down the cog-railroad. The half-hour ride from Kriens brings you to another short cable car journey to the 2,070-metre Pilatus-Kulm. From here, there is a six-to-10-minute climb to the summit of the Esel, the central (but not the highest) point of Pilate, with a stunning view of the Alps. It's a 30-minute walk from Pilatus-Kulm to the Tomlishorn, at 2,132 meters, the highest point of this rugged limestone massif. You and your group can be shuttled to the mount and picked up late in the evening with a chartered bus by our bus company.
2. Chapel Bridge
The most prominent sight in Lucerne is the Kapellbrücke, a covered wooden bridge running diagonally across the Reuss River. Apart from being a picturesque landmark for Lucerne, the bridge, built in 1333, stands out for the more than 100 paintings of the 17th century hanging from the roof of the rafters inside, depicting patron saints and scenes from the history of the region. The Kapellbrücke was badly damaged by a fire in 1993, but it was completely repaired and restored. Next to it is the octagonal Wasserturm, a 13th-century water tower more than 34 meters high and once part of the city's fortifications. Bridge and Tower are one of the most photographed locations in Switzerland
. We recommend a bus rental of a nice comfortable tour bus of our bus company.
3. Lake Lucerne
Known as Lake of the Four Cantons, Lake Lucerne is a beautiful, irregularly shaped water body that invites you to explore. The lake has four sharp angled arms, with impressive mountains on all sides. Lucerne is in the northwest corner of the lake, and you can get Luzern Bahnhofquai to catch one of the five paddle steamers from the early twentieth century on a lake cruise. Chartered bus would be a good partner to carry your party to this wonderful lake.
4. Old Town
The old town of Lucerne, on the right side of the River Reuss, still has many old village houses and small squares with fountains. Many of the wood-framed buildings that line the stone streets are painted in bright colours, giving the Altstadt a fairy-tale look.
5. Mount Rigi
One of the best projects in Switzerland is to move the cog rail from the shores of Lake Lucerne to an altitude of 1,798 meters on Mount Rigi. This is the first cog rail in Europe, and you can ride in remodeled cars from as far back as the beginning of the railroad. Many of the steam engines date back to the 1920's. From the top, the view stretches all the way to the Black Forest of Germany. One of the most common things to do is to make a scenic round trip by taking a cruise from Lucerne to Vitsnau, where you'll ride the cogwheel train to Rigi Kulm. Then take another cogwheel train to Arth-Goldau and ride the train back to Lucerne. Bus rentals at our bus company should make it easier for your party to get there.
The Spreuer Bridge is the third covered wooden bridge in the city of Lucerne alongside the Chapel Bridge and the Hofbrücke, which was demolished in the 19th century. A first bridge had connected the mill square on the right bank of the Reuss with the mills in the middle of the river since the 13th century. Chartered Bus would be a good companion to visit this covered bridge.
7. Swiss Transport Museum
Bus rental wants to bring you to the large complex of exhibition halls and outdoor exhibits, including all modes of transport as well as communications and tourism. The Swiss Museum of Transport in Lucerne is a versatile transport and communication museum and the most visited museum in Switzerland. It shows a large collection of locomotives, cars, ships and planes as well as exhibits from the field of communication.
8. Museum Bellpark
Located in a 19th-century house in the suburbs of Lucerne, this little-known museum focuses on the history of the area. Innovative exhibits combine new objects with antiques and highlight the local art scene. Previous exhibits included Krienser Masken (Masks of Kriens): 1920-1970, on the famous folk art masks made by the citizens of Kriens, and Die Ersten Hundert Tage der Siebziger Jahre (The First 100 Days of the 70s), a look at the archives of the 20th century gallerist Pablo Stähli.
9. Jesuit Church
Bus company will show you the first large baroque church in Switzerland that was built for the Jesuits on the left side of the Reuss between 1666 and 1677. The interior was restored to the Rococo style in 1750, with an excellent painted ceiling and carved fake marble side altars. Check the schedule for the beautiful organ concerts in the church.
10. Glacier Garden
This remarkable legacy of the Ice Age includes glacier-polished rock, small boulders dropped by the retreating ice, and 32 potholes created at the base of the melting ice waterfalls. Many are massive, and their creation is illustrated by a working model of the process. The exhibits often demonstrate how the changing climate is impacting the environment.
