What You Can Expect

Lucerne City Walking Tour

Visit world-famous sights such as the Chapel Bridge

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.

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.

Our guide was excellent and coped very well with some tricky questions from persistent guests. She was well informed, supplied interesting facts and the walking was at a reasonable pace fo4 all to keep together, unlike some guides. Definitely worth doing.

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.

In this two-hour walking tour we explored parts of the city that we would have missed if we were walking on our own. The group consisted of 14 people and we met at the Information Office by the central train station. Our guide was wonderful. She was a great story teller and explained the history, culture and the development of the city as well as pointing out migrating birds to us. She also highlighted other places in the city we could visit on our own and gave clear directions of how to get there. Could not believe we had walked for two hours may be because it was a relaxed pace and was a nice quiet Sunday morning.

My husband and I would highly recommend this city tour.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2017

This was an excellent Lucerne city walking tour. Well worth the time to get acquainted with the city before you can go explore more on your own. Our guide's name was Freida and she took us around town and into ! some buildings we would not have known were open to the public. It was very interesting and her narrative gave us the confidence to explore further once the tour was over. - Thanks to Freida!
