On the bank of Lake Lucerne in central Switzerland, Lucerne benefits from a unique alpine panorama, and the heart of the city leaves no one indifferent. Its wooden bridges, including the famous Chapel Bridge which spans the Reuss River, as well as its squares and quays, attract tourists from all over the world. In the old town, the houses around the Wine Market, are decorated with sumptuous fresco paintings, with the decorated signs of old corporations still visible. On the docks that lead to the beach, the visitor will find ancient palaces and amazing views of the lake and the Alps. 

But Lucerne is not only renowned for its postcard landscapes and medieval architecture! In fact, the city is also home to numerous museums and cultural sites such as the famous Swiss Museum of Transport or the Cultural and Congress Centre (the KKL), a triumph of design by the French architect Jean Nouvel.
