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.

  • Walked by, under, around this several times each day - it's beautiful and hard to miss. You do want to check it out from both sides.

  • The main train station is located right in the center of town. As you arrive to the city you see the beautiful lake in front of you. The station had many cafes, restaurants and even supermarket. It is easy to navigate and it’s about an hour away from Zurich.
  • Most gorgeous place. Postcard picturesque! The most beautiful city in Switzerland 🇨🇭. I absolutely love Luzern. ❤️ A must visit city!
