Lucerne City Tour

Get the best of both worlds on this full day trip to central Switzerland and Lucerne's old town. After a brief guided city tour, the rest of the day is yours for self exploration. Alternatively, you can upgrade and include a sightseeing cruise on Lake Lucerne.


  • Full-day city tour of Lucerne from Zurich
  • Zurich day trip includes a drive over Albis Pass
  • See Lucerne's top attractions like the Lion Monument and Chapel Bridge
  • Six hours to explore on your own; visit the Picasso Museum or take a boat ride

Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

An ideal option for independent travelers since you get all afternoon to wander Lucerne on your own. Here's my list of must-do's: stroll through Old Town, have a drink in one of the bars along the River Reuss and take a walk along the Lake Lucerne promenade.

Luzern trip was excellent, the tour lead was a teacher before and he was fluent in many languages, so explained the tour in great details. His photography was good as well, took nice photos of us on my camera for remberance. Boat trip was quite relaxing with photoscenic views of mountains, blue sky, lovely weather. Viator had organised it well.
Outdoor eating places were fantastic. I will recommend the trip to anyone, everywhere there were spring cool water on fountains where we filled our plastic bottles. Water was so tasty coming from top of mountains, we hated any soft drinks.
