It is the first city to join the Swiss Confederation and is now having a thriving tourism industry, which owe primarily to its status as “Gateway to Central Switzerland”. Tourism in Lucerne has a distinguished history that dates back to the mid 19th century, which involved Mark Twain. As such, the city is definitely a great place for tourist sightseeing and activities.

 

Places to visit in Lucerne

If you are off to a holiday in Lucerne, do not miss visiting Lake Lucerne on a ferry ride for some amazing scenery views. You should also check out the Jesuit Church, which boasts of its beautiful baroque style that is usually depicted by lots of cherubs and flower carvings in the foundations. 

 

Another place to visit is Mont Pilatus, which is located nine miles south of the city. It got its name from the medieval times when the city fathers banned travel up to its peak, as they thought its slopes were haunted by the ghost of Pontius Pilate. Even after the ban was lifted, still a few people were brave enough to climb it.

 

Lucerne is also a great base from which you can do some sightseeing and activities in the famous Swiss sites of Mount Titlis, Mount Rigi and Rütli Meadow.
