one of Europe’s oldest wooden bridges and landmark of Lucerne, faithfully restored to its original design.
This strip of rock bears the scars inflicted on it by the glacier that slid over it some 20 million years ago. The best thing about the garden, though, is its kitschy 1001-nights mirror maze.

The History Museum of Lucerne is located on the south bank of the river that runs through the city. This museum is housed in a building that used to be the town’s arms supply and still exhibits many displays related to the military history of Lucerne.
The 114 sq km (44 sq mi) lake has been called the heart of Switzerland and it is surrounded by four cantons: Lucerne, Uri, Schwyz and Unterwalden.Water sports are popular and many explore the lake''s wonders by paddle steamer. A glance or two at a shimmering expanse of water with majestic steep peaks of limestone hunched over the coastline, forests coming down to the shore filled with deer, chamois, foxes, and Alpine-native marmots; and fertile hillsides, meadows and valleys would not dissapoint you.
Danish artist Bertel Thorvaldsen''s Lion of Lucerne (Löwendenkmal) was built in 1819-21, a big dying beast sculptured into a former sandstone quarry wall.The Lion Monument commemorates the ''loyalty and bravery of the Swiss'' who ''fell in the line of duty'' or ''survived the battle through the care and attention of friends'' during the French Revolution in 1792.
The well-preserved, 14th-century city wall (Museggmauer) provides marvellous views of Lucerne''s rooftops, alleyways and squares with medieval, Renaissance and Baroque houses, and beyond to the lake and mountains.
one of the most diverse museums in Europe for transport and communication, and the most-frequented museum in Switzerland.
