Two Hour Private Walking Tour of Lucerne

Discover many of Lucerne's famous sights on this walk through the Old Town. This tour meets and begins under the arch in front of Lucerne's main railway station. From there we will walk along the Reuss River and wind along the centuries old cobbled streets of Lucerne. Along the way we will see the KKL, the iconic Chapel Bridge and Water Tower, the Jesuit Church, the Francisican Church, the Speuerbrücke ( The other covered bridge), Wein Market, Hirschenplatz, The Korn Market and Kapellplatz.

Along the way we will talk about the history of Lucerne and Switzerland, which will help you understand the Lucerne of today. We will even catch a glimpse of the Mussegg Wall, even if you elect not to see it up close. Along the way tips and suggestions will be offered for your stay.

The Old Town Walk is about 2 hours in length. If you would like to meet the famous Lion of Lucerne, we can include a visit to the Lion with an extra 30 minutes.

If you would like to walk the Mussegg Wall and meet the Lion, add on an hour.
