Occupying a stunning position on the banks of Lake Lucerne where the River Reuss meets the lake, Lucerne is a fascinating, colourful city winning the hearts of its many visitors. Small enough to discover on foot, explore the charming streets of the traffic-free ‘old-town’, with its frescoed buildings, delightful cafés, shops and boutiques, or drop by one of the city’s museums. Lake steamers regularly call in at the harbour, carrying guests to pretty lakeside villages such as Weggis and Vitznau, or to the local mountains of Mount Rigi, Stanserhorn and Pilatus Kulm, which all offer a good scope for walking. Our hotels in Lucerne offer a great choice of accommodation.

Lucerne is small enough to discover on foot allowing you to explore the charming streets of the traffic-free "old-town", with its frescoed buildings, delightful cafés, shops and boutiques, or drop by one of the city's museums. A regular fleet of lake steamers call in at the harbour, carrying people on holidays in Lucerne to picturesque lakeside villages such as Weggis and Vitznau, and to Mount Rigi, Bürgenstock, and Pilatus Kulm - reached by the steepest cogwheel railway in the world. There is good scope for walking on many of these local mountains. A free boat ride and city walking tour is included for those on Lucerne holidays who are staying for 7 or more nights.
