Lucerne, located in the heart of Switzerland is a charming city situated on a picturesque lake encircled by impressive mountains.

In addition to its gorgeous setting on the shore of Lake Lucerne amidst snow-capped mountains, the city is widely recognised for its magnificent medieval architecture.
Lucerne is home to The Chapel Bridge, which dates to the Fourteenth century. It is well-known as the World’s oldest truss bridge. Numerous cafés and eateries can be found all along the lakeshore. Go here to unwind and take in the breathtaking scenery. Erected in honour of the Swiss troops that assisted the French royal family during the French Revolution, The Lion Monument, which serves as a tribute to lost troops during the terrible catastrophe.
