Altstadt Luzern, Lucerne

#1 of 10 in Shopping in Lucerne
Neighborhood · Shopping
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.

  • Very nice hotel and super well located. For about €27 you can have your car parked all night. The room itself was very comfortable and very clean. The guys at the reception were very professional and helpful when needed. We highly recommend this place if you manage to get a good price.
  • It was a very cozy place with an excellent buffet spread. The chocolate bars at the breakfast buffet was a treat for the kids as they cud binge on them galore.. The staff was extremely polished and prompt. Loved the stay and kept wanting for more!!
  • Nice service! Got problem on my heater and they compensate me well đź‘Ś A great place for couple and friends. The room that i got was a bit too... exotic for family visit. But it was perfect service and breakfast!
  • Very authentic hotel. Awesome location. Historic building nicely renovated. Staff is excelent. Breakfast is the best. Room is very comfy. Location is outstanding with square with fountain just outside
  • This hotel was in a great location and the room we had (a 4 person room) was spacious and clean. The downside of this hotel is the noise in the square. Not only the tourists being loud into the night, but also the recycling and street cleaning that starts around 6am each day. This is not the place to stay if you want a restful vacation or are not morning people. It's great for proximity and walk-ability to all Luzern has to offer.
