Located in north-central Switzerland in the German-speaking county, Lucerne, capital and city, is a charmingly beautiful haven for tourists with historic sites, landmark buildings and a getaway to some of the best hill resorts – Mt. Titlis, Mt. Pilatus, Rigi on the Swiss Alps and Stanserhorn. The Lucerne Railway Station has a beautiful cupola entrance that leads to Lake Lucerne and an underground tunnel that connects to the Culture and Convention Centre, which also houses the Kunstmuseum Luzern (Museum of Art, Luzern).
Sited on Lake Lucerne and imbedded within the impressive panorama of mountains, Lucerne offers a fascinating view of the medieval city with the iconic Chapel Bridge (Kapellbrücke) on River Reuss, the city walls with nine watchtowers and its chapels and facades. The historic wooden Chapel Bridge was built in 1333 and restored in 1993, has a number of attractions including many 17th century paintings and an octagonal water tower.
