Explore the spectacular sights and cultural delights of Lucerne on a 2-hour morning walking tour with a knowledgeable guide. Stroll the intimate tangle of alleyways in search of impressive monuments like Chapel Bridge (Kapellbrücke) and the ancient Jesuit Church. Gaze at the metropolitan Culture and Congress Center and delve into the rich historical heritage of the city by listening to entertaining commentary from your guide.
  • 2-hour walking tour of Lucerne
  • Learn about the city’s history from an expert guide
  • Visit top Lucerne attractions including the Chapel Bridge and Jesuit Church
  • Discover hidden streets and busy town squares for a glimpse of local life
Greet your guide and group at a central Lucerne spot and commence your 2-hour walking tour of the German-speaking city perched on the shores of Lake Lucerne. Stroll across the 14th-century Chapel Bridge, that spans the Reuss River, and listen to legends surrounding the oldest surviving truss bridge in the world. Capture photographs of the Water Tower that flanks the famous structure and then continue to Jesuit Church. 

Absorb the tranquil atmosphere of the sacred structure and gaze at the first Baroque church in Switzerland. Learn about its cultural and architectural significance and then head to the Culture and Congress Center to admire its dynamic design. 

Scour the city for remains of the Musegg Wall, a medieval city rampart that used to protect Lucerne, and then navigate the serpentine tangle of alleys and lanes that surround atmospheric public squares. Watch locals go about their daily business and hear tales of cultural traditions before returning to your original departure point, where the tour concludes.

The walking tour was a very good idea if someone wants to understand the city. I went on the tour before exploring the city myself so after the tour I knew what to do. The guide answered all our questions and showed us things we could find by ourselves Thanks a lot!
Best way to see Lucerne

An easy 2 hour walk with a clear English spoken tour guide (Erica) was excellent. She hit all the important places you have read about & a few that you haven't. Great insight on the history & facts of this beautiful city you must visit. Also very easy (and cheap) to get to on Swiss railway, we were just a 1hr trip away from Basel.
An interesting walk around Lucerne with a charming and well-informed guide

The old town area of Lucerne is quite small, so we enjoyed an in-depth look with our guide, Annamarie during our walk. Although we covered a relatively small area, the time was well-spent with strategic stops to learn a lot about Lucerne's past and present. Annamarie was charming and shared personal stories that added much to the tour. She was also extremely well-armed with facts, figures and anecdotes with respect to everything along the way, from the architectural details of the modern convention center/concert hall where we started to the family crests in the surviving paintings on the covered wooden bridge.

Lucerne is fantastic, our guide was very good, but as in Zurich the tour was in both German and English so we spent one hour of the two hour tour waiting while the guide talked to the other folks.

This walking tour was a good way to see Lucerne and learn a little about the city. The tour guide took the time to answer our questions. The only thing that would have made the tour better is if they had included the Lion Monument.

The day we decided to take this tour it was raining very heavily but the tour still went on. We walked to all of the important sites including the chapel bridge, a chapel, KKL building, and saw other various sites the city had to offer. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and provided us great historical information regarding the city. She also gave some food recommendations for a local fondue restaurant and various local shops with authentic gifts from Switzerland. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Lucerne who is interested in all the sites the city has to offer.
