Popular Attractions in Lake Lucerne

Chapel Bridge and Water Tower
4.7/5
449 Reviews
Bridge
The Capel Covered Bridge and the Octagonal Water Tower are landmarks in Lucerne and even Switzerland, and often appear on postcards. Built in 1332, the Kappel Covered Bridge connects the two sides of Lucerne. It is the old wooden covered bridge in Europe. It was rebuilt after the fire in 1993 and has been leading to the octagonal water tower of the representative of Lucerne. Like the Museg City Wall, this bridge and water tower are also part of the Lucerne fortifications.
Lion Monument
4.4/5
553 Reviews
Monument
The Lion Monument, aka the Lion of Lucerne, is a rock relief commemorating Swiss Guards massacred in 1792 during the French Revolution. The giant sculpture is 6 m high and 10 m long. The upright wall of rock is the remains of a quarry exploited over centuries in the building of Lucerne. The statue sees a regal lion dying from a spear wound which is marked by a shield bearing the emblem of the French monarchy. Mark Twain once described the monument as “the most mournful and moving piece of stone in the world.” Standing there, it is impossible not to feel a sense of grief and wonder. It's a truly moving experience.
Mt. Rigi
4.7/5
324 Reviews
Hiking
Mountain
At the forefront of the Alps, Mt. Rigi is known as the “Queen of the Mountain” and is a famous observatory in central Switzerland. Since ancient times, it has been a famous place to watch the sunrise and sunset. From the observation deck on the top of the mountain, you can enjoy panoramic views of the Alps and extend to the Black Forest in Germany and the plains of France. In the early 19th century, cultural celebrities such as Weber, Mendelssohn, and Victor Hugo visited here. In 1864, Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom also visited the Mt. Rigi.
Lucerne
4.5/5
440 Reviews
Country/City
Lucerne’s sights are concentrated around the old town hall, such as the 17th century old town hall, the Chapel Bridge and the 17th century Jesus Church. You can stroll through the old town where the medieval flavor still exists, and transfer to art galleries and museums. If you have more time, you can visit the lakeside museum, or do sunbathing by the lake, and deepen the beauty of Lucerne. The land is printed in my heart.
