Altstadt Luzern, Lucerne

4.6
#1 of 9 in Shopping in Lucerne
One of Switzerland's best-preserved medieval quarters, Altstadt Luzern attracts visitors with its maze of narrow streets, cobbled passages, and public squares. Located just north of the Reuss River and surrounded by the remains of Lucerne's medieval city walls and towers, the old quarter features an idyllic lakeside promenade flanked by a string of half-timbered buildings with elaborately decorated fronts. The pedestrianized Old Town contains most of the city's major cultural attractions, including the oldest wooden footbridge in Europe. This easily recognizable landmark serves as a convenient starting point for sightseeing tours.

  • On Friday, market day in the old town of Lucerne, right and left of the river is from 6-13 h. Beautiful, delicious, and very individual offer. Very much recommended.

  • We immensely enjoyed walking in altstadt Luzern. The streets were very clean, and there were many interesting things to see. Most everything is closed on Sundays though.
