  • So many masterpieces under the same roof! If you like modern art, you really cannot miss it. It deserves at least 2 hours if you like to take your time and admire the artworks without rushing.
  • The views from this garden were truly exceptional and worth the hot trek up the hill!
  • Medium sized collection with some impressive works and a very interesting history. An enjoyable visit and very worthwhile.
  • It costs$18 francs to enter. I didn't have enough money or time to make it worthwhile. Although it was less than one hour to closing they would make no allowance for cost which is sometimes done at other museums.
  • Great collection. A lot of picasso!

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.
