Lucerne Station, Lucerne

4.5
Catch a train, do some shopping, or take a behind-the-scenes tour at Lucerne Station. Conveniently situated in the center of the city, this lakeside station serves as one of Switzerland's major hubs of domestic and international railway traffic. Originally opened in the 19th century, the station suffered major damage during a 1971 fire. Reconstructed in the 1980s, it now features a sprawling concourse designed by distinguished Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. The heart of the restructured station, the multi-level concourse provides access to an underground shopping mall selling everything from books and newspapers, to fine watches and designer clothes. To see how the station works behind the scenes, take a guided tour of its signal boxes and control centers.
