  • Absolutely not to be missed in a visit to Luzern. An oasis of peace and an excellent point of view over the city
  • Really nice view of the city, and the best is: FOR FREE. Including see the go upstairs in the tower :)
  • Free to enter the city wall and learn about its history here. Great place to take a stroll and get great views above the town and of Mt Pilatus.
  • Hostorical place. Free of visit. Nice view and cool place in hot days. Be aware steep staircases.
  • The day we went to visit the during Swiss Carnaval the doors were locked and we couldn't enter to the viewing point, but the walkway along the wall was pleasant and offered great views of Luzern with the lake in the background.

Where to stay in Lucerne

Small, historical Lucerne is big in its accommodation offerings. Surrounding the bay are plenty of mid-range and upscale hotels for those looking to splurge, putting you right downtown with easy access to sights, bars, and restaurants. If your budget is tight, look into the handful of guesthouses in the city. There are limited hostels available, and they tend to be a bit farther from the city core. Be sure to book in advance to avoid missing out.
